Well, I'm using :
 - encrypted HDD,
 - encrypted emails from time to time,
and I'd rather not have Claws storing them un-encrypted.

If that's a search problem, I'd prefer Claws to ask me the decryption key
while searching, and not sacrifice security (remember, even if your HDD is
encrypted, once the partition is mounted, the encryption doesn't protect
anymore the content for someone that can gain access to the machine :(
