gpgsm: Cipher default: 3DES, because of OL2003

It seems that Outlook 2003 cannot deal with AES encrypted
S/MIME emails and even spits out some error message which is unhelpful. 
At least in German is says something about an ID not found.

So the default for gpgsm should be 3DES.
(For 2.0.10 is was changed to AES, and this causes us to detect the 
interoperability problem.)

Note, to find out the default encryption cipher, you could use the
command: gpgconf --list-options gpgsm
(or the internal version gpgsm --gpgconf-list )
