No, your feedback is really valuable and helpful!

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... :-/

Cheers, Albrecht.

Greetings, Albrecht.

After reading your message to Pawel, I was able to solve the problem of the signature; I discovered for myself the solution which you describe. And yes, this IS a a very reasonable temporary solution.
So now, I can "clean out" the spam from the IN box using only the mouse on the TRASH icon. Forgive me for failing to look over the menus before lodging a compliant.

Before discovering Linux, I used Eudora PRO in Windows -- for about five years. As you probably know, Eudora is the most popular mail client for Windows -- at least, this was the case until everyone started using Outlook Express. And so I tend to judge every mail client in the light of Eudora. But I must say that, in all but a few minor points, I have come to prefer Balsa over Eudora.

One feature of Eudora which I have not yet discovered in Balsa is the ability to send a message again -- typically, modifying an address or some other detail before re-sending the message. By "sending again", I mean specifically to a copy to the DRAFT box a message from the SENT box, while leaving the original message in the SENT box. With Balsa, I am able to TRANSFER a message from the SENT box to the DRAFT box and then modify and re-send it, but then I have lost the record of the original message. Of course, I can copy to myself each message I send, but I prefer to retain in the SENT box a copy of everything I have sent.
