there might be an issue with sqlite3 databases, citing the comment (I
didn't check the actual code at all):

One other question, for camel "caches", what's the advantage to encrypt
provider's cache when you do not encrypt message itself, where is much
more data, actually the real complete email? I know this is meant for
things like imap (which has its own cache mechanism anyway), but you
might be able to do the same encryption for On This Computer storage and
*all* providers as well, because you always may want to download your
corporate messages to local store because of quota limitation (I recall
one user doing so).

So this might be rather "all or nothing", right? Otherwise security guys
will be pretty unhappy for partial "solution".
