Yes, I can confirm:
If S/Mime is enabled in GpgOL options dialog, sending with 'encryption only'
and 'encryption/signing' is working.

Yes, would be nice to enable backwards compatibility for recipients known
for using old pgp/gpg clients.
Default: Use PGP/Mime
Option (in Kleopatra's key management?): Use PGP/inline for this key

Toggling between different setting for signing or encryption can cause less
usability and may cause confusion on non-nerd side ;)
In my opinion favorite way would be, if working for encryption and signing
in view of recipients need. If a recipient is known as not supporting
PGP/Mime, preference could be set once to 'use PGP/Inline' in key options.
Fire and forget, it's realized for example in GPGrelay keyrules...

Another point:
If password input is cancelled or if wrong password is submitted several
times (3x?), restart of Outlook is necessary to get another chance for
password input.
Is it possible to trigger this 'second chance' by menu icon or right click
menu item in Outlook's incoming mail list?

Thx for review + best regards,
