Encryption Dialogue Box

Every time I begin writing an email, the encryption dialogue box opens and asks me to enter my pass phrase.

After I have written the email and want to send it off, the same dialogue box opens again and demands that the pass phrase be entered again.

This is a waste of time. If the first entry of the pass phrase is not going to suffice for an email, there is o point asking for it. I suggest you suppress this first demand and only ask for the pass phrase when the email is despatched.
