Send an unencrypted reply to an encrypted message infinite loop

If I want to send an unencrypted reply to an encrypted message with spell check upon sending enabled, I'm stuck in an infinite loop and unable to send the message. I get the warning sheet titled "Attention: You're about to send an unencrypted reply to an encrypted message" as expected. When I click send anyway, I go through the spell check process, and when I try to send the message, the sheet pops up again. This loop continues indefinitely until I hit cancel, which results in being unable to send the message.

    You're probably already aware, but as a workaround for the time being, you'd have to switch the Spellcheck setting away from "check on send" to something else.

    We'll keep you posted as soon as we have news about this bug.
