Please forgive me for asking this question.
I really do not know anything about encoded mail and therefore
have no idea where the problem may lie.
But is it really necessary for a message sent to, say, this mail
list which contains all of the text as shown above?
I know that the posting rules for openSUSE lists suggests that
the max number of lines in a signature be limited to 4 lines but
the above is simply ridiculous.
You are mixing two completely different things: signature and
The netiquette rule you mentioned applies to signature as in "I put
my name at the end of letters I write." And indeed 4 lines max is
a reasonable rule. My personal rule would be "as small as
possible", in other words, don't include information your readers
have no interest in. Speaking of this...
I hate to chime in with a "me too" message but I should respond to
this as well. You've pretty much said exactly what I would have.
The GPG signature is functional and email clients that understand them
will filter them out of the message body when the message is read.
Beyond that, the signature itself will be checked against known keys.
