My question: are there rules for the fedora email traffic saying: do not use signatures?But, people get bent out of shape because they view html emails as bandwidth wasters. So, by the same token they will (should) view signed emails as bandwidth wasters and will equally get bent out of shape.I've read (probably in connection with TIN news postings) that sigs should have no more than 3 lines after the ---.
I don't mean ascii signature lines, but emails which have been digitally signed by the mail client, for example thunderbird: there in the composer window, you can say: "security->digitally sign this message" before sending it (produces a big attachment containing the digital signature). This is what i meant.
