    PGP signed email


    Hi all,


    I want to sign my email with an PGP signature. I've generated a DSA signature and included it into my Kmail setup. When I send an email to person X and that person opens that email in Gmail (web interface) than that person only sees an attachement named 'signature.asc'. Within that signature is the PGP signature, but it's not clearly visible.

    So what do I want? I want that signature in my email, just like the people behind the Debian security mails. Below is an example from one of their mails, opened in the Gmail web interface. There is no attachment, the signature is in the mail itself, this is what I want to accomplish too.
    -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
    Hash: SHA1

    The updated packages from DSA-2154-1................

    Mailing list: debian-security-announce@lists.debian.org
    -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE-----
    Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)

    =RjQY
    -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
    I've read something about armored PGP keys, which can be displayed as ASCII. Something like this. But I don't know how to implement this automatically in my signed email... Can someone give me some more information?
