Thanks for testing. I cannot reproduce that behavior though I've uploaded a 
screenshot of my test at [1] to make sure we talk about the same thing.

The idea is that only toggeling the encrypt button should do just that :-)

If it does not work for you this would be a bug and we will have to figure out 
why it does not work for you. Can you file one?

No, currently there is no such option. Do you wish there to be one?

Would it be a problem for you if we added such an option only for messages 
that are also encrypted?

Inline signed only content is even more problematic then inline encrypted 
content (see [2])

Oh yee,.. this is a bug. It worked at one point. We had that pencil / sign 
icon in the message list for signed only messages, but It appears we broke it 
again.  I've opened issue2190 [3] for this.

Btw. we are hoping to find better icons that look nicer (especially the small 
versions) in the Outlook > 2010 look and feel.

We want to have a different icon for signed only but a different icon for signed 
/ encrypted is a bit more difficult once a message is encrypted we have to 
decrypt it to see if it's also signed. So a different signed / encrypted icon 
would need to be set after decryption. Technically changing the icon means 
changing the message class and we do this way earlier. This is the reason we 
currently don't distinguish between them. Should be possible, though to change 
the message class after decryption / verification but It's extra effort.
