During send.  I.e. Have an option for send to support signing/encrypted.
It is only at the send stage that you know a message will not
be further modified by the user.

With the current motivation by some to do work on nmh, supporting
SMIME/PGP should be considered.  If some of the mail parsing and
MIME handling is improved, adding such support may become easier.
