The obvious way is to suggest they use an OpenPGP application, such
as GnuPG or PGP, to verify your signature.

It all depends on whom you're willing to trust, and how much you're
willing to trust them.

If they need to validate your email, OpenPGP is one of the best ways
to do it. S/MIME would also work well for the task.
(Given that this is the GnuPG-Users mailing list, any further
comments I make on this will be GnuPG only. However, honesty
required that I point out alternatives.)
