Right. Let me count the ways in which this statement is wrong.

1. I'm sending my comment as a text/plain attachment, which your
MUA *should* be smart enough to display along with the part that
mailman adds. The additional pgp/gpg signature is sent seperately
and marked appropriately. As it should be.

2. Making comments about other people's posting habbits while using the
worst known MUA in existence is pretty bold. If posts appear broken and
wrong, always assume that Outlook Express is in the wrong - not the
poster.

Now I realize that you're using a broken user agent, and
you should pretty much expect all kinds of brokenness when doing so.

To avoid taking this further, I will no longer sign my emails with my
gpg signature, to allow people who are for some reason stuck up on using
broken MUAs.

I do suggest trying a better alternative though. Mozilla Thunderbird
springs to mind, and I'm sure there are others.
