I don't understand, what's going on. I answer to an email with an encrypted
email. This encrypted email I sent is stored in the Sent-folder.
Now I want to review this encrypted email I sent and can't decrypt, open
and view it.
I understand is encrypted with the public key. Do you say if i had encrypted
it with my own key additionally, I would be able to open and review it?
