(If I recall correctly, this issue was discussed before also but I
can't seem to find the thread/ticket.)

By default, Enigmail saves an encrypted copy of the message. This is
the default setting [1] and I think it also confirms this when it
saves an encrypted message for the first time. TorBirdy does not
modify this setting so it should be enabled by default for Enigmail.

If you did not change this setting but still observed this behavior,
please open a bug report [2] with all the relevant information
(version of Thunderbird, TorBirdy, Enigmail, etc.) so that I can check

Come to think of it, perhaps we should disable the automatic save
feature altogether (#6337). Suggestions welcome.
