  thanks for your reply.

Maybe I do soemthing wrong and following the instructions, still receiving 
'bad signature'.
It's my mail and my signature (for testing purposes) so I'm sure signature is 
ok, btw.

Does it matter if in the beginning of the part is:

Content-Type: Text/Plain;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

and the whole copied part ends with:


Also, when I copy the text, when using Kate (text editor for KDE, Linux), I 
always use utf-8 for opening/saving documents.
Shall I change to another charset ?
There is no choice for exactly 'ascii', just e.g. western european ISO 8859-1 
and many others.

Thanks for tips & help.
