Yes. That I would also call weird.  ;-)  << hope the smiley works...

I use TB, OpenOffice, and several others, because of my work. Work is
Windows or Mac, home is Linux Fedora. I want to *not* use different
programs if don't have to do that. Hard on the head.  ;-)

I have used GnuPG for a long time. I sign my messages and personnel
emails and all business emails are sent signed and encrypted. However
if signing it is really a problem with the users on this list I will
stop. But I do see many others that do sign and no one says there is a
problem. So I do not think that this is the problem here. Might be
(ducks head to avoid blow) Evolution's problem. It was buggy for a
long time.  ;-)
