Just a note.
I had the surprise to get back the confirm message at an address different
from the one I had specified.
Actually, the program seems to parse the message and compare the address with
the signature. If the two don't match, the reply is sent to the address found
in the signature ( I think this is an understandable security feature).
Perhaps, the program has some difficulties parsing the signature.
I had deleted the signature, and then got the reply to the good address.
