Hash: SHA1

So this dual encryption is done with one message? if I encrypt to 10
different people, it can do this in a single message?

Encrypt to self does not seem self-explanatory enough.  I thought it
meant when I send myself an email, which I do from time to time, that it
should encrypt it.

What is my certification that the email actually was sent encrypted?  My
sent mail box does not contain the actual mail sent, but a different
email.  Somehow that just does not seem correct.  I suppose unchecking
"encrypt to self" will solve my issue.
