Hej Simon,

thanks very much for your comment! I didn't know that setting yet.

But I'm lacking phantasy of how to use this for preventing me of sending
unencrypted in case that Enigmail does not work properly....

So, if it does not work, the confirmation request will not appear and
mail goes out unencrypted, doesn't it?
