Why is that when an E-Mail is sent via an E-Mail client it's altered, but not if it's sent via the web site?

Ok, I've got a question for everyone.  That is why is it that when one sends a signed
E-Mail through an
E-Mail client that it gets "altered" somewhere along the way rendering the signature as
"bad?"  Yet, when one sends a
signed E-Mail via the web site that it doesn't?  Such as this one, I just about guarantee
that once it's received, and
then passed onto the subscribers that it'll have the following MSG:

*** PGP SIGNATURE VERIFICATION ***
*** Status:   Bad Signature
*** Alert:    Signature did not verify. Message has been altered.
*** Signer:   Herman Frederick Ebeling Jr. <hfebelingjr () lycos com> (0xDB13DBD3)
*** Signed:   11-Jan-06 12:15:55 AM
*** Verified: 17-Jan-06 7:00:16 PM
*** BEGIN PGP VERIFIED MESSAGE ***

I've also notice this happening with more then one of the groups at Yahoo, as well.
