Basically, you have the option to either sign and/or encrypt a complete  
message including all attachments ("mime mode" form the options menu), or  
to sign/encrypt the first text part only ("OpenPGP"). I wrote a  
description which you can find at

Please note that if you OpenPGP sign a message, the recipient having a MUA  
not supporting signing/encryption will not see the confusing attachment,  
but has all the PGP stuff inline (see RFC2440 for an example...), which  
IMHO will be more confusing.
