Yesterday E-mailsigning broke again, this happened already five or six weeks 
ago on both
of my computers, which had the same configuration, now the problem reappeared 
on my main
PC. When this happened the first time, I tried nearly everything possible in the
GPG-Settings of Icedove, generated new keys, and so on, but nothing helped. 
Finally, when
quite desperate already, I chose the radical solution and removed the whole 
- -Directory, reconfigured Icedove manually and downloaded again all the 
messages from the
IMAP-Server. Instead of the normal greenish line at the top of the message 
window, upon
sending a message 
'OpenPGP Error - signature verification failed; click on 'Details' button for 
information' appeared as top line of the sent message with a pink background.
This time I solved the issue by copying the .icedove-directory from my second 
PC over the
same directory of PC one, without deleting it first, then it was OK again. I 
report it
now, because the problem reappeared and I don't have any clue how to fix this 
other than
the radical method. The Details-button gives the following OpenPGP Security 
Info : 
- ---
OpenPGP Security Info

Error - signature verification failed
- ---
No further details about the key or anything.

This happened in half an hour, meaning that I sent a normal E-mail and half an 
hour later
this would not work anymore as expected, but break the character encoding of 
the next
mail and give the error-message above.
