You probably need also to *send* mails in that format!
That's the format recommended by RFC2440, so at least you should make it a 
per-user option.

it's easier to decode PGP/MIME than to scan the body for lines that appear to 
be PGP headers.  You just have to check the MIME-type:

Content-Type: multipart/encrypted;

inside this you'll have an application/pgp-encrypted part
