Description of problem:
If you are composing a message in Evolution, and click Send, you are (initially)
prompted for a dialog to enter your gpg passphrase. If you click Cancel on this
dialog, you are returned to the Compose window. If you change your outgoing name
or account from the Compose window in the "From:" field, and click Send again,
the message is sent in the clear, and no prompting for a gpg passphrase is offered.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compose a message in the normal Compose window
2. Make sure you have gpg enabled, and click Send
3. When the gpg passphrase dialog pops up and asks for your passphrase, click
Cancel, which will return you back to the Compose window
4. Change the outgoing address in the "From:" field of the Compose window
5. Click Send again
Actual Results: The message is sent in the clear, and no prompting for the gpg
passphrase is offered or used.
Expected Results: The message should have offered the option of sending with
gpg signing, encrypting, or otherwise.
I'm pretty certain this was a conscious design decision made upstream. If you
cancel signing, then it disables signing on the message by default.
