I think Ricardo has a point. However, the downside of bothering users with that
kind of decision (where most of them don't know what this weird popup is
talking about) is that we're basically conditioning users to either just accept
the stuff that pops up, or to turn that hidden pref on. Both may result in a
loss of security.

So, no hard feelings from me either. The traditional Claws Mail way is probably
to do it accurately, and ask the (supposedly expert) user.

(Silencing via Release Notes, that's a good one :D)
