Using Kgpg, how to verify signature


I'm using Kgpg to sign my emails, however I want the recepient to be able to verify that the email he receives actually has been sent by me (that the signature is genuine) and not somebody else. What are the steps needed to do that?

Many thanx,

The other person needs your public key on their keyring, and can then use that to verify the signature is valid.


gpg --verify message.eml

(Would be even easier if the recipient used something like Mozilla Thunderbird w/Enigmail, to transparently handle the verifying of the message).
