Re: The Case Against MIME

For the majority of e-mail messages that are currently generated 
there is
no reason to use MIME formatting including PGP formated messages!

There most certainly is. 

?       Any form of rich text and/or attachments must be sent via MIME. 
?       It is extremely useful to be able to separate the signature from the
message (aka RFC 1847). 
?       It co-exists comfortably with other encryption standards that use RFC 
?       It allows for automatic handling of PGP messages with out scanning every
message body.

OpenPGP is going to be used mainly for email messages, and MIME is the future
of email. Lack of support for MIME is not an option for email clients.
