A sends to B a signed e-mail
B now has public key of A and can cypher msg back to A (I used LotusNotes
because I didn't know hof to do it with TB)
When i try to read such encrypted mail just the header is displaied. It seems
encription stops TB to extract smime.P7M content nothwithstanding TB had the
private key. I tried both with my own cert and with other friends. The CA issuer
is present and trusted in the TB keyring.

It seems to me more that TB isn't able to open up a PKCS#7 smime.p7m attachment
even if not cyphered but didn't try still this second thinking.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load a PKCS#12 containing a valid X509V3 cert in the TB keyring
2. try to send signed mail to another person
3. this person have to store public key in NAB (address book) and try to reply
writing some text in the body and then cyphering and send mail.
4. When TB will receive it. It won't be able to watch the content.

Actual Results:  
No body is visible: no text or other attachments

Expected Results:  
The body should display text sent from sender and / or attachments.

I didn't use special themes and I don't use Enigmail.
