However, it appears that the addition of the fedora-list signature which
the mailing list software adds is doing something to confuse at least
Mozilla 1.7b. I can see the:
Content-Type: application/x-pkcs7-signature; name="smime.p7s"
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="smime.p7s"
Content-Description: S/MIME Cryptographic Signature
block in the message source, but Mozilla doesn't show it as signed. It
shows it properly from my "Sent Mail" folder, however. I'm pretty sure
this is just a bug with the beta Mozilla, however.
