Would it be possible for you to provide me with an example message? 
Especially if you don't see a banner where MailMate tells you that it 
cannot decrypt the message. Note that I won't be able to decrypt the 
message. I'll only see the headers/structure. Use “Message ▸ Forward 
as Attachment” and do it off list.

I don't know why that happens. MailMate itself does not provide these 
menu items. Their behavior seems to be outside of the control of 
MailMate. In any case, if it was possible to decrypt this way then it 
should also work automatically in MailMate, so let's focus on that.
