Perfect, that is exactly what I need. Thanks Javier.

Still, one thing remains. I know ASCII armored is not preferred for PGP 
encrypted content 
(https://dkg.fifthhorseman.net/notes/inline-pgp-harmful/), but the 
mobile email client K9 sadly does not support PGP/MIME yet 
(https://code.google.com/p/k9mail/issues/detail?id=5864). So I enabled 
the ACII armored check mark in Sylpheed and emails are sent out so K9 
understands them.

But it looks like as if Sylpheed cannot handle ASCII armored PGP 
emails. I now am looking a base-64 encoded emails only.

Anyone can confirm this?

I know K9 should get their PGP/MIME support ready but if ASCII armored 
is supported as outgoing format it should then be understood for 
incoming mails, too.

Thanks for the help.
