MailMate 1.13 renders an S/MIME signed-only (unencrypted) message as encrypted

Reported by Daniel Kahn Gillmor | December 24th, 2019 @ 06:00 PM

Russ Housley submitted a screenshot of MailMate 1.13 rendering a message that is S/MIME signed.

Although the message is signed, it is not encrypted. It is signed using the "application/pkcs7-mime with SignedData" mechanism outlined in §3.5.2 of RFC 8551.

However, according to the screenshot, MailMate 1.13 appears to indicate to the user that the message is encrypted.

    I've fixed this particular case, but it would still fail to work properly if smime-type is missing.
