2.0a21 not seeing any way to encrypt or use in Mail

Just got a new mbp, running OSX 10.7.3. I've used the pre-Lion version with no issues for a long while.

Installed the 2.0a21, got my keyring going with several keys, etc. All looks fine.

In Mail, I can get the to the GPG Mail Preferences.

When writing an email though, there is no icons or options to encrypt/sign anything.

What am I missing?

    I rebotted my OSX due to installing a system update and upon re-starting Mail, the OpenPGP works now when sending messages. Not sure why it wouldn't work before, but all seems ok now.

    Interesting it didn't work. It's necessary to restart Mail.app at the moment, whenever you modify your gpg keys. This will be solved in an upcoming version.
    Great it works now!
