I'm having trouble reading signed emails (in the mail app, not gmail).

The email client only shows: "mail is still on server" message, not the email content.

Could you previously read encrypted E-mails via the E-mail app? – newuser May 10 '11 at 14:17
@JonnyP Nope. They are just signed, not encrypted. And desktop email clients have absolutely no trouble reading them. – Let_Me_Be May 10 '11 at 14:38

As far as I know, this is simply a bug in the HTC email application. You can try using a different client (K9 supports signed messages, I believe), but beyond that you'll have to take it up with HTC and hope that they decide to fix it at some point.

Here's a related XDA thread where someone includes what he says is a response from HTC regarding the issue. There's also a thread on the Android Central forums where someone reports the same bug (and no solution). Those threads are a little on the old side, but I don't believe HTC has fixed this yet.

I'm still in WTF mode. And probably won't get from it for some time :) Why the heck would the deliberately block signed emails? Thx for the info anyway. – Let_Me_Be May 10 '11 at 18:42
