No takers? I am the only one getting a fresh S/MIME cert? I now
modified claws-mail to add preferences to each mail account for
separate PGP and S/MIME key choise and set the correct keys there.

I still wonder if that is the right approach or if there is a way to
convince gpgme to decide about the best key to use (clearly where all
others are expired).

Alrighty then,
