if your mail client does not follow/support standards, then you
certainly should think about exchanging it. Or contact the support of
the programming company.

For serious, your mail header shows up

X-Mailer:  QUALCOMM Windows Eudora Version

as MUA, and I can't say how good or bad that client is in supporting
standards. End of March I did initialize a thread with subject "GPG
signatures and list mail" with quite some responses. the conclusion -
not only by me - was, that it's a client side problem, if it does not
handle signed mails proper. Typically those "problems" arise on
Windows[tm] platforms.

GPG/PGP signed messages are a feature and no bug ;)
