I would suggest that a it should be a high priority that Balsa be

As I said yesterday, I agree fully with you that we must find a simple
solution for this problem. I'm not yet sure about the best way, though.
However, I was a little confused about my own code yesterday ;-) - the
dialog shown is actually a standard warning box. I moved the "run gpg..."
button into the message itself a while ago. So you can get rid of the
popup (and other warnings, e.g. if the message includes 8-bit chars, but
no describing mime header) by just changing the pref for warnings from
"show dialog" to "nothing" or "terminal". The signatures will still be
checked, but the only feedback you get is the red padlock, and of course
the explanation in the message itself. Would this be a (temporary)
solution for you?
I think I should note at this point that the method for retreiving missing
keys is not perfect. In the long run, balsa should use an external app
like seahorse or gpa to do this job. Seahorse development seems to be a
little stalled, though. I am currenttly working on a port to gpgme 0.4
series for it, but I'm still fighting with a few routines, so progress is
a snail. And we all have a family and a job... :-/
