I believe you are correct.  There is usually a signed attachement in addition
to the actual text.  We are required to use M$ Exchange and get our mail through
an exchange server at work.  It also does our calendering.  M$ Exchange is has a
lot of brain damaged features, but the alternative is to buy the Linux exchange 
client myself and install it on a machine here.  I have not gotten that desparate
yet.  I will search for GPG or PGP plugins for this beast.  Thank you for the
