Hi all,
I am developing an E-Mail client and trying to implement digital RSA/BLF/other formats processing. But I have stuck in the thing, that the message with the signature can be in various formats. So, are there any standart format of an E-Mail message with digital signature? And waht is the most-spread algorithm me to use to make sure it will work (while checking identity) on most part of platforms/applications? Nad the last thing is: can the digital signature be spoofed/hacked, in other words, how strongly can I rely on it?
Thanks beforehand.

PGP signed messages are standard and supported by most popular email clients (some simple virus spreaders with email function like outlook need a plugin). :)

Most programms use GnuPG (www.gnupg.org)... its a command line programm and you can easily shell it from your programm.
