That's cool.
Perhaps one could extend the header-pane a bit more:

I think of something like a row (or column) of icons showing the status 
(encrypted, signed, attachments, replied, new, unread, forwarded...) that 
are clickable and show more information about this special topic in a 
context-menu (e.g. sig valid (and the infos 'bout the key), the attached 
files, forwarded to (that would have to be saved somwhere), replied with 
the date...)

I haven't seen something like this before, but it would be very useful (at 
least for a person like me, wanting to archiv everything) and informative 
with no cost on usability and no wasting of space in the window.

If I think a little bit longer: a row on the right side of the header-pane 
would fit perfectly...

no, haven't done this yet - I'm in the testing-state right now :-)
It's just a personal key for now...
