GPGMail: Mail only shows one banner: key expiry on junk mail

When I get a message that's both junk mail and the key has expired, it is correctly moved to junk mail, but only the key expiry banner shows up at the top of the message.

When I download the new key, then the junk mail banner shows up.

I expected to see both banners, but I think this is a mail interface limitation. Overriding the junk mail banner is probably ok, but the remote content banner and the bad signature banner should both be shown. (Either I can never load remote content on badly signed messages, or I load remote content on a malicious message, then find it was unsigned.)

    Hi Tim,

    thank you for reporting this issue.
    This is indeed a very tricky one, since I don't believe Apple Mail allows two banners to be displayed. Have you seen two banners at once at one time?

    No, I have never seen two banners at once.
    Perhaps you could prioritise the signature banner, but allow it to be dismissed so people can load remote content (there is no menu option for this, apart from the global preference), or deal with junk mail (which isn't as important, as there are menu options to change the junk mail flag).
