Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I have been using Evolution for some months, there also sowed up some problems, that I
reported. Recently I found, that the mail-signatures it makes are not correct and cannot
be verified by other clients. Evolution  itself is unaware of the problem, it doesn't
show problems with it's signatures, but when mailing out to Thunderbird/Enigmail for
example, the signature cannot be verified. I am usind a DSA/ElGamal-Key, that was
generated by seahorse. That is why this is not merely a wishlist-item, like 'DSA-support
missing for signing mail-messages', but in fact this is a feature that needs to be there,
because seahorse is part of the GNOME-desktop as well as Evolution, and it is the
default tool for generating GnuPG-keys, when not doing it manually on the terminal.

My key is the one belonging to andreas.glaeser at irregulaire.info:
