When writing a new email (i.e. not answering a previous one) which is automatically marked to be encrypted the drafts are save unencrypted. This happens when the email is automatically marked as encrypted, either by a per-recipient rule or using the new system on 1.7 which encrypts when there are stored pubkeys for the recipients. If the email is manually marked to be encrypted (e.g. by clicking the yellow key symbol on the bottom-right) the drafts are correctly encrypted before being sent to the IMAP server.

    Fixed. Encryption of drafts follows now uniquely the rule of the account/identity setting.

    Okay, now if I save a draft AND the message is NOT set for encryption OR signing, then the message is still encrypted. When I try to open the draft message, it asks for my pass phrase, shows the message and again asks for my pass phrase.

    So, 1.7.2 is now broken :(

    EDIT: I changed an IMAP account setting in my Thunderbird 31.1.1 to not encrypt draft messages as a temporary work around. I would be happy to save drafts in encrypted format for those messages that would be sent encrypted, but quick simple drafts to nobody [yet] don't need encryption.
