GPG Mail "Security" label doesn't scale with other labels

Just a minor issue, but I just noticed that after changing the message font in Apple Mail's preferences, the size of the "Security" label remains the same (see attachment). Restarting Mail doesn't seem to help. Is there another way to change the font size?

    Sorry, I should probably have posted this in the "Stable" category.

    Hi Maarten,

    welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite.

    The images used for the lock and star icons are static if I recall correctly. We use the same icons Apple uses for displaying S/MIME. I don't think there is a way to make them adaptive to the font size set in Mail > Preferences. But we'll discuss this internally and see if it's possible to make this happen.

    Thanks for taking the time to report this and have a great day.

    Hi Steve,

    I wasn't really talking about the icon, but the actual "Security" text. The font size of "Security" is smaller than that of "Re" and "To". This becomes visible when you enlarge the message font size in Preferences. I have attached another screenshot with a bigger font size selected, to more clearly show the issue.
