My emails are signed, for the good reason that I don't want anyone
impersonating me.

I have noticed that MS Outlook is not standards-compliant with respect
to signed emails. I don't know about other clients - most should
handle RFC compliant emails. If you are using MSOutlook, could I
recommend you try a different client?

As a consequence of the popularity of MSOutlook, I do not sign emails
to [EMAIL PROTECTED] But emails sent directly to a personal
email address are still signed.


*PS: A number of people ask me about the attachment to my email, which
is of type "application/pgp-signature". Don't worry, it is not a
virus. It is an electronic signature, that may be used to verify this
email came from me if you have PGP or GPG installed. Otherwise, you
may safely ignore this attachment.
