PGP email message format/shape
i am just wondering how does the encrypted email message using PGP looks like, does it encrypt and sign the message only or also attachements, but what about the headers and envelope of the message ??? plz can any one answer me.

A good read would be: (Non-Technical) PGP FAQ
But to answer some of your questions directly..
The envelope and headers can't be encrypted, the mail servers can't handle that (RFC 821)..
PGP however can encrypt plaintext or HTML formated mails and attachments.
ASCII stupid question, get a stupid ANSI.

thanks alot the_JinX but can u provide me with more advanced documents, tutorials or articles "not about cryptographic algorithms but about the format itself may be some snapshots" and thanks for the letting me know that PGP only encryptes message body and attachements.
