Heh. There's nothing to worry about -- I don't own or use any Windows
boxes, so there's no chance of picking up a worm from my e-mails.
What you are seeing is Outlook (or Outlook express) brokeness. The
e-mails I send are signed using gpg(1), which uses a special
'multipart/signed' MIME type for the message body. See RFC 2440 for
details. However, Outlook thinks it knows best and ignores the
'Content-Disposition: inline' header.
