inline-encrypted" or "Signed, message text encrypted".

attachment(s)".  Possibly even the simply encrypted tooltip that appears for
mime-encrypted messages could then indicate that such a message might well
include attachments and a signature.

Further to that case, the emblem that is shown on the message body never
indicates that it is encrypted (for example, if the decryption fails or is
cancelled) because it always receives a pgp_signed emblem of some sort.  Not
easy to change though, it would probably require two emblems.  That would give
the option to have en emblem for decrypted attachments though, which might be
