Do you have the following in your .emacs ?

(setq notmuch-multipart/alternative-discouraged '("text/plain"))

I think that's the work/not-work switch. I'm not sure if it makes sense
or not in terms of seeing the behaviour I do. I discard plain text
because I get a ton of html email at work with various embedded images
etc and I want to be able to read that (which works fine). But I can see
that to quote a reply from an encrypted message, you need to quote the
original text which will be plain text.
What do you think?
