O.k., I understand.

The problem is that some mua's support only mime (RFC3156) mode (sylpheed, 
evolution [?]), whereas others only know about openPGP (RFC2440, e.g. 
pgp4pine). So IMHO it's an advantage that balsa knows about *both*. '3156 
seems to be more safe from the mta's POV and more flexible, as it can 
painlessly sign/encrypt multipart messages. However, *lots* of people in 
the academic world still use pine, as its still usable from a terminal 
over a bad ssh line, so this standard is far from being dead.

But I agree that such a button should *not* go into the identity panel, as 
it's *recipient* dependant. And we (I?? My english is *very* bad!) should 
write some words about it for the online help...

See my other post to the list. :-))

I can just say that's a *lot* of fun, in particular if there's positive
