            Bug ID: 3336
           Summary: Claws-Mail saves e-mails to Drafts, no way to disable
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: 3.10.1
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P3
         Component: Plugins
          Assignee: users at lists.claws-mail.org

1) Use GnuPG
2) Compose e-mail
3) Watch Claws-Mail save your e-mail IN PLAINTEXT to the server you have
4) Get your e-mail read by your e-mail provider

I am unable to find anywhere I can disable Claws-Mail from saving the e-mails
being composed to the "Drafts" folder. This is a major security problem and
makes Claws-Mail completely insecure when used with GnuPG.

Preferred behaviour would be to NEVER save your e-mails to "Drafts" when a
GnuPG key is configured for an account. An alternative solution could be to
save it as a message encrypted to yourself when saving to Drafts but I think
the best thing to do would be to not save messages to Drafts. This could be a
configuration option which is enabled by default if a GnuPG key is set.

There should probably be a configuration option to prevent it from saving
anything to "Drafts" every even for non-GnuPG users.

GnuPG+Claws-Mail is to be considered unsecure and compromized with the current
way it works.
