Auto-switch between S/MIME and OpenPGP

Odd environment where I need to use both.

S/MIME for corporate email, PGP for personal and project-related email.

Found this article:

Which says I can set the default. But what'd be really useful, is if switching could be made smarter.

i.e. if I have a trusted PGP keypair for my selected 'From:' address, but no S/MIME cert with that altSubject/email, then PGP should be selected. If the inverse were true, S/MIME should be selected. If the same address were contained within a PGP key, and an S/MIME key, then the default would be used.

I don't know if that's possible now? It's definitely a feature i'd be willing to pay a licensing fee for :)

    Never mind, i'm an idiot. Had the corporate email as a UID in my GPG key, works like I described out of the box.

    Thanks for the great software!
