So Where Can I Find RFC 2015 Compliant Mailers

    For lists:


    MUA implementations of RFC 2015:

	compatibility kits such as Cygwin, UWIN, MKS, MS Unix Services
	for NT, etc.)

	    emacs (through various mail extensions), exmh, ishmail, mew
	    (an emacs mail reader), mutt, premail (Netscape plugin),
	    Gnus 5.6.45 with TM and Mailcrypt, KMail, Mixmaster 2.9
	    (internal mail reader), Sylpheed 0.4.63, TkRat, XCmail,
	    XFMail 1.3.

	Legacy MS Windows, Macintosh, and other platforms.

	    Claris Em at iler with PGP 5 (?), Datula (plugin), Edmax
	    (plugin), MS Outlook Express (plugin), MS Outlook (plugin),
	    Mulberry (plugin), PMMail (native), Qualcomm Eudora (full

    Some additional informational resources for your benefit:

      - RFC 2015, "MIME Security with Pretty Good Privacy", M. Elkins,
	October, 1996,
	http://www.cis.ohio-state.edu/cgi-bin/rfc/rfc2015.html , spells
	out the standards for encrypted and cryptographically signed
	email.  Note that signature-as-attachment is required by

	Note also that munging the content of multipart/signed messages
	violates RFC2015.  This addresses issues with several broken
	mailing list management software packages.
