Please can you post your exact OE version?

The code should output all text, but actually I never tried with very
long messages. I will check this again.

What do you mean by "not visible"? Copy copies the text in the clipboard
so you can paste it somewhere.

You mean you could not encrypt or sign in Outlook Express any longer?

The problem is, that the plug-in uses the clipboard for data transfer.
I've to admit that this isn't 100% clean but the only way and I also
see the problem. I will add this point to the README but for now there
is not much I can do.

Hmm, I tested all kind of message types and also a PGP/MIME message.
When no GPG data were found, no action should be performed. It works
on my system. Maybe you can forward me the test message which produces
the "no data" error?
