You have ;)

Just one more comment, and then I'll leave it to the developpers ;)
The emails you send are composed unencrypted, this it is very easy to ask
user wether to store them encrypted or not.
The emails you received are stored as-is, at the time they are received.
Storing them unencrypted would require to ask you wether to do it for every
encrypted mail, to let you change the default, because the password is
needed. Plus, doing that is breaking the initial intent of the sender ;)

My last $0.02 on that subject ;)
