What happens is:
Balsa encrypts the message with the keys matching the to addresses,
followed by encrypting with the senders key. The reason it encrypts with
the senders key is so the sender can read the message in his/her sentbox.
When Balsa finds more than 1 key or can't find a key it gives a key
selection dialog. Maybe the dialog needs improving but this is how Balsa
