-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I am relatively new to enigmail. I started off using PGP/MIME, it seemed neat. However, some contacts read their mail in web browsers, eg Gmail, and all they saw was the signature and could not view content of the message. It was a hassle trying to remember which contacts used the web browser to read email in. Switching to in-line solved the issue for me. Now the see the signature and email content.
It is nice we have the choice to select from.
