The problem stays the same. The implication of my experience(and several of 
the list replies here) are:
If you want your mails to be delivered, abandon crypto. I do not like that at 
all. 

There were suggestions like contacting the admin of the receiving mail 
server(the one with the filter) and telling him that his spam filter better 
not delete signed mails, or telling my friend to tell her boss that she has 
problems with her business contacts due to signed mails being filtered out. 
Well, thats a theoretical approach imho. The company I'm refering to is the 
size of the swiss UBS bank. Good luck contacting their admins. And one 
employee complaining about the spam filter, I seriously doubt it would change 
much.
