Please note:

Mobile Encryption for iOS is able to decrypt PGP-EML, PGP/MIME and PGP Partitioned encoded e-mail.

Replies may be sent either in PGP-EML or PGP Partitioned format, depending on policy and the encoding preferences of the recipient keys.

The app cannot send PGP/MIME encoded messages due to IOS limitations (one of the reasons for this limitation is unavailability of mail headers for modification).
