I guess you use the balsa 2.0.15 tarball, which in turn needs gpgme  
0.3.14, .15 or .16? This is the result of a strange bug in gpgme 0.3.x.  
After signing a message, gpgme will report each signature trust as  
"unknown". After encrypting or signing and encrypting, the trust level is  
correct again.

The bug has been resolved in gpgme 0.4.3. So you might want to use the cvs  
version of balsa, which you can get using the commands (assuming your  
shell is bash)

cvs login         # (just hit enter as password)
cvs checkout -r balsa-2-0 balsa

Please see and for further  
information about the gpgme changes.

As I added a nasty bug in this release, please be sure to add the patch  
you can find at

Hth, Albrecht.
