Any ideas?

When you say "digitally signing", you mean that in the crypto sense, not just appending a typical "name and address" email signature to every email, right?

As an extreme measure, you could remove the public-key-certificate/private-key pair from your keychain. You could export the pair first so that you could easily re-import it if you ever wanted to sign a message or decrypt an encrypted message.

Yes, indeed, I mean in the crypto sense, not a text signature but rather a crypto hash of some sort that certifies that the message has been sent by me. Removing the key pair seems a bit drastic to me, but maybe I will have to end up doing that. – introiboad Jun 24 '13 at 0:51
