I've been signing emails to a mailing list with GPG, but they always seem to come through with an invalid signature. I'm using OpenPGP/MIME format.

The only difference I can see is that

Content-Type: Text/Plain;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

changes to

Content-Type: Text/Plain; charset="windows-1250"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

Would this affect the signature? I realise that a single character difference makes the signature invalid.

I don't see any options in Kmail that would affect the layout of those lines.

does using utf-8 as an encoding fix the problem? –  lfaraone Sep 12 '10 at 21:25
I think I have seen utf-8 on some of my emails, but I don't know where that is coming from –  steevc Sep 13 '10 at 11:34
If it's an open mailing list, can you provide a link to a sample message? Ideally in a raw format. –  jmtd Sep 17 '10 at 12:38
Please file a bug by going to the terminal and typing ubuntu-bug kmail –  akshatj Oct 3 '10 at 7:45
