    Hi John,

    are you able to reproduce the problem? How many recipients are you writing to? Are you positive you have a public key for each of the recipients?

    Also are you maybe forwarding a message when this happens?

    All the best,

    Hey John,

    just a ping on this. We are curious to hear about this problem. So far we've been unable to reproduce it, which makes fixing it so much harder.

    Are you using any special service like some internet fax service? Do you have additional plugins running in

    Looking forward to your reply,
