There is a difference. It is not much for a mail reader which supports MIME
to support PGP signed (not necessarily encrypted!) mail. HTML is totally 
different in that it requires a parser and special output devices (usually).
/Anything/ can support signed mail.

Why does it matter why someone is using PGP? If you're reading Debian lists,
get a mail reader which can handle what we throw at you. Eudora with the
PGP plugin works just fine, thanks.
