Description

For Tails 3.11 we will check if users have Autocrypt enabled for their accounts and ask them to disable Autocrypt.

The dialog is prometed to the user, when they start Thunderbird, for every account with Autocrypt enabled. Please check the user visiable strings/grammer check:

<b><big>Do you want disable Autocrypt?</big></b>

You have Autocrypt enabled for <i>\\\${server}</i>.
Autocrypt is a quite new feature, that should help you encrypting without even think about it.
In the past, there were cases, where unencrypted messages were sent unexpectitly.
Tails recommend to disable Autocrypt for the moment, but you can still keep it enabled, if you know what you do.

Do you want to disable Autocrypt for <i>\\\${server}</i>?

We'll only need to do this work is we pick option C (#16299#note-19) => let's first decide what we want to do, before we spend time designing a GUI that's needed only by one of the candidate options.
