            Bug ID: 3836
           Summary: Give PGP/MIME signatures a name of "signature.asc"
                    instead of "noname"
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: 3.15.0
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Plugins/Privacy/PGP
          Assignee: users at lists.claws-mail.org
          Reporter: lscotte at gmail.com

Signature attachments using PGP/MIME currently arrive as"noname" when received
by users on gmail (and perhaps other email providers?), which causes some
confusion - even though gmail does not support PGP/MIME, and the mime-type is
sufficient for email clients that know what to do with PGP/MIME, it's helpful
that the attachments have a coherent name, such as the common "signature.asc"
used by other mail clients.

>From a quick perusal through the claws source code, this might be as simple as
adding a line in pgpmime.c at around line 476 that looks something like:


Although I have not tested this myself. I may try my own patch and see how it
