The message is encrypted on the4 IMAP server.  I suppose you COULD
decrypt and replace the mesage on the server, but I havent ever done
that.  Of course, having the message eencrypted on the server means that
if you do one of those "search entire message" searches on the server
side, it won't do the right thing for encrypted content.

As far as whether storing a decrypted copy on the sesrver makes sense,
it depends onthe situation.  If it's gmail, it may not, if it's your own
server like mine is, it probably doesnt really matter.
