Umm. Lots of questions. 
Sign your email using ???  GnuPG? 
Outside of KMail does GnuPG work fine for you? Any errors or warning when running it from 
CLI? What versions of GnuPG? Kmail? 
FYI, Kmail in RHL 9 isn't setup for PGP/MIME and the inline plugin will still do non-RFC 
compliant signatures. But you're not even that far yet...

Yes signing my email with gnupg.  I have since gotten it working by building the necessary 
packages and adding the necessary plugin.  in the past i have used evolution  but have 
switched to kmail for various reasons.  There seems to be something that is stopping the 
default inline plugin from accepting my password as valid. im using Red Hat packages from 9

Hrmm. Basic signing (non-RFC-compliant) worked for me fine. I compiled the additional 
packages to get PGP/MIME (didn't worry about S/MIME). I'd suggest closing the bug unless 
you really think you've found something that was repeatable and you'd be able to provide your 
setup (minus key). Cheers, -Ali
