You mean that Ken Moffat's sig in that previous email. I just tried,
having imported it successfully with:
gpg --recv-key 3043C26D
but I can't verify it. It says:

[-- PGP output follows (current time: Sun 18 Sep 2016 22:15:34 CEST) --]
gpg: Signature made Sun 18 Sep 2016 17:46:03 CEST using RSA key ID
gpg: BAD signature from "Ken Moffat (ntlworld address)
[-- End of PGP output --]

[-- The following data is signed --]

and in the status bar:

- s - 334/335: Ken Moffat Re: OT: Miro's PGP signature [Was: urlview..
PGP signature could NOT be verified.

I am able to verify some people's sigs in previous emails, like this
email, of course in my mailbox [*]:

Sort mailboxes vs. file browser

multiseat is such an idiotic thing on most of computers, since one user
99% of the time... and who then is the other seats for? Oh yes, for
somebody, yes, don't worry... But that'd be too much of a digression...

Really thanks for replying!

But I fixed it in the meatime.

Oh I didn't, not myself... I figured out Gentoo devs were right, and did
great job, I installed from Portage...


And now it, still checking, but it now, mostly at least, or much better
but not always, works, the urlview.

[*] And I'd be terribly interested to learn, some day if not soon, how
can one check mails by their signitures when they are exposed in public
web, such as on Mutt Archives, or in my (frozen) Lurker (
