The "unstable" tree now has "elm-me+", which has better support for MIME and
PGP than plain old elm; you might want to use that (or "mutt", which is
somewhat elm-like and has a number of very nice features).

It might have to do with the way elm categorizes them. 'P' and 'S' are for
messages which use PGP. Unlike mutt, elm uses only one character position to
give this information; maybe 'P' or 'S' override 'M'?
