Thanks for the explanation.

The header says:

| MIME-Version: 1.0
| Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii; x-action=pgp-encrypted
| User-Agent: Mutt/1.5.21 (2010-09-15)

The test mail sent with sylpheed to myself and decrypted without 
Problems has

| X-Mailer: Sylpheed 3.4.0beta7 (GTK+ 2.24.13; i686-pc-linux-gnu)
| Mime-Version: 1.0
| Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII
| Content-Disposition: inline
| Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

I guess it is a "mutt" problem.
