           Summary: Unencrypted e-mail gets saved on IMAP server
           Product: Claws Mail (Windows)
           Version: 3.8.0
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: critical
          Priority: P3
         Component: default
        AssignedTo: users at lists.claws-mail.org
        ReportedBy: feek at abwesend.de

I'm using Claws Mail (via gpg4win-light-2.1.1-svn1694-colin.exe) for my Google
Mail account to send encrypted e-mails.

In my Claws Mail Google Mail account preferences:
*e-mails get encrypted and signed.
*I'm using PGP MIME.
*I deactivated the option "Save encrypted e-mails as plaintext" (original
German: "Verschlüsselt versandte Nachrichten im Klartext speichern" is
*I activated the option "Encrypt e-mail with other key AND own key" (original
German: "Nachrichten zusätzlich zum fremden mit eigenem Schlüssel

When I send such an e-mail
*a correctly encrypted e-mail goes to the To-Address
*an UNENCRYPTED e-mail is saved on my Google Mail account.

In my opinion, the unencrypted e-mail stored in my Google Mail account is a
major security breach. It is open to plain inspection by Google and peers.

*How can I deactivate having a copy stored in my Google Mail account?
*In case I want to keep a copy, how can I have this copy encrypted with my own
public key?
