    Hi Torsten,

    this is expected behavior. We default to encrypt all drafts to prevent situations in which important drafts could end up on servers from your mail hoster with the email in unencrypted form. You can change that behavior (although not recommended) in Mail.app > Preferences > GPGMail (encrypt drafts).

    Drafts are not signed because we do not want to bother the user with asking for his passphrase so just the draft is signed.

    Let me know if this answers your question,
