Warn when adding a recipient without GPG key

GPG Mail 2.5b5 in Mail.

When I compose a new email with multiple recipients the blue encryption icon is shown if they all have keys. If I then add another recipient without a key, the blue icon is disabled. It is very easy to not notice this which results in the message being sent unencrypted.

If at least one of the recipient has a GPG key, I would like a warning message when I'm about to send a message unencrypted.

    Hi sjors,

    thanks for getting in touch about GPG Suite, and for passing this suggestion along! We have an open request for improved key handling when composing a new mail, and I've added your comments and vote to it (one of the factors that helps determine what we add to our software is the number of people that have requested a given change). We'll keep your input in mind as we plan future GPG Suite releases; for the time being at least I'm sorry to disappoint!

    I connected this discussion with the existing ticket. That means, should this discussion get closed, it will be re-opened as soon as the ticket is closed. That way you'll receive a notification. Feel free to open a new discussions should you run into further problems or need assistance.

    All the best,
