I certainly hope not! For years I have made it a habit to sign all my
email. In that way, if someone ever pops up and says I sent
such-and-such an email, and it's NOT signed, I can argue that it was
forged more likely than not. OR, if it's signed but doesn't verify, I
can prove it's been modified. And the signed copy from my "Sent Mail"
archives can prove exactly what I did send.
