I try to be extremely clear. I cannot verify your signature, neither with
Enigmail nor using gpg stand-alone. My version is 1.4.12

Steps to reproduce the event:
1) I import your key using your key-ID from within gpg 1.4.12 typing
gpg --recv-keys [your key id],
result: gpg has imported your key, everything's all right here.
2) I open the header of your message.
3) I copy the signature and save it as a "beckus_sig.asc" file using a simple
text editor (or, optionally, as "signature.asc")
4) I type
gpg --verify beckus_sig.asc (or signature.asc)
5) gpg outputs: No valid OpenPGP data found. Signature verification failed.
(I am retranslating that into English,so please be kind with any imprecision you
may find).

What's wrong with what I am doing?
