Well, the receiver of the mails wants to use a new keypair for all new mails. No matter how careful he is, it ends either in reusing the old private key occasionally or in deleting the old private key (and loosing all old mails of douptful value).

In my case, I like to create a keypair per project. When the project is "done", I' like to archive the mails in a readable (aka unencrypted) manner in a save (offline) place and delete the keypair.
