No, that's not a "missing key" message (gpg knows how to fetch missing
keys, and anyway then it wouldn't know who the key owner was), that's a
"bad checksum" message. In some other email client, I used to get those
from character set reencoding problems. (Well, you might call it "from
checking at the wrong point in the pipeline", but it happened whenever
there was non-ASCII involved, because reencoding failed to reproduce
the exact original signed text. That's what it signifies: whatever gpg
got fed was not the exact original signed text. And as I *have* seen
correct signatures, even with non-ASCII, with this setup, I think it
must be a problem at the other end.)

... I'm looking forward to that.
