Understood. At the prompt 'no' means never and forever. 'Yes' means
always and forever. And the GUI 'check box' in the preferences appears
to do do nothing.

Related. Enigmail 2.0 beta 1 'removed' the Lock and Pencil Icons that
were present in Enigmail 1.9.9 (can be returned by "Customize") and
while doing that I found a Icon that toggles "Protect subject" per message.

In the GUI, where the 'checkbox' does nothing, if I edit the 'message'
to change the 'Encrypted subject' it breaks the feature and the Subject
is not 'protected'.
