They are already there.

What seems to be a problem is that I can easily verify the signature from other people (I should say, my MUA correctly verifies most of messages), but not from Stefane and few other people. So, I try to understand why it fails sometimes (famous Russian question: Whose fault?).

Thanks for the information.

"BAD signature" signifies that both content and signature information are available, but are not corresponding one to another. So, I guess that the verification failure is due to the fact that both the identity and the content contain non-ascii characters.

I just wanted to know if my configuration (mutt- + gnupg-1.2.1) is somewhat erroneous.
Apparently, it is the case.
