Nice try, dick.

The truth is, its just too easy to impersonate and email address.

I only know one person who digitally signs his emails. Even for him its a pointless exercise because nobody actually checks for it. I had to install a windows update the first time he sent me a signed email, so I can’t see it catching on any time soon…
