As long as you don't use any of MS's "sign cleaned" features, and you can accept
that any virus or filename tagged messages will break the s/mime signature
you'll be fine.

In general s/mime is rather intolerant of any message body changes. This
includes footers like "this message scanned by.." pasted at the bottom, etc.

As long as you can avoid settings which make body changes, you should be fine.
