thank you much for pointing this out.
Just a few days ago I changed the configuration of my email client to use the 
SMIME Standard for encoding signed and encrypted mail just because SMIME is a 
RFC, while inline coded I think isn't.
I was not aware of
a) Exchange/Outlook still not being able to follow the RFCs.
b) Exchange/Outlook still being in such widespread use despite its lack of RFC 
support and security.
I also was not aware of that (or more: I didn't care about wether) SMIME means 
creating attachments / boundary messages, which of course is an affront to 
mailing lists.
Therefor I switched back to inline coded instead of SMIME.

Sorry and thank you.
And apologies to the list.
(though all outlook/exchange users also should demand apologies from microsoft 
good mail readers are mutt, kmail and others ;-)
