Well, the background is, that more or less nobody is using encryption.
But I want to have an encrypted Mailbox.
So every incoming mail gets encrypted with my key via procmail.
The mail is then forwarded to my provider.

When sending to someone, I have the pgp key, the mail in the
sent-folder is encrypted as well like colin point out.

"Se the account's privacy preferences to

[x] encrypt sent messages with your own key in addition to recipients'
[ ] save sent encrypted messages as clear text

So that works fine. But that only happens when writing to someone which
pgp-key, and that is rarely the case (unfortunately)

It should be easy for CM to encrypt them even though the mail (for
example to this list) will be sent unencrypted.

So the funny thing is, that although nearly everything is encrypted the
sent-folder reveals everything. (replies including citation)

So there should be an option like:
[x] encrypt _every_ mail in sent-folder with my key :-)
