Bug#762107: enigmail: Encrypts drafts of unencrypted emails

Ralph Katz
Package: enigmail
Version: 2:1.6-4~deb7u1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
        After yesterday's stable icedove security update, draft unencrypted emails are saved encrypted, ignoring default behavior.
   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
        Entering pass phrase works, but should be unnecessary for unencrypted emails. Attempted to force unencypted has no effect (ctl-shift-E).
   * What was the outcome of this action?
        Unencrypted emails, saved encrypted, then edited with pass phrase, are correctly sent unencrypted.
   * What outcome did you expect instead?
        The old behavior; compose, save draft, edit, send email all without entering pass phrase for unencrypted emails.

Thanks!  However the "fix" in  https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1491211
is wrong.  There is no "Enigmail - Preferences - Signing/Encryption
options"  in up-to-date jessie stable.

The only config setting is on the icedove account -> Account Settings ->
OpenPGP Security -> uncheck Encrypt draft messages on saving.

Maybe it's a bug that settings are in these two very different places?
