Thanks for your feedback, those freezes were particularly nasty to and it is 
always great to hear of successes with a new version and not only of 
problems ;)

I remember a similar problem that signed mails from KMail were not validated 
by enigmail because of a bug in the whitespace handling in one client. I do 
not remember which one did it correctly (RFC compliant) and can't find the 
bug report anymore, but yes there are some issues with different e-mail 
clients handling signatures differently. 

Can you send a mail to this list you've signed in outlook but which does not 
validate in enigmail? This would allow us to take a look at it and see if 
gpgOl does everything correctly and if there should be a bug reported to 
enigmail or if we have a problem with gpgOl.
