           Summary: [gpgmime] Signing fails with "Secret key specification
                    is ambiguous"
           Product: Claws Mail

I do have two keys in my keychain that include the mail address for my main
account. The account's GPG setting is "Select key by your email address". When
enabling signing CM opens a dialog "Select Keys", listing the two keys matching
the mail address. No matter which one I select I get this error message:

Signature failed: Secret key specification is ambiguous

Taking a look at the terminal output it looks like CM hands over the mail
address to GPG (not the key ID), which is still ambiguous of course.
