Encrypt existing emails in inbox?

I have enabled encryption using my public key, but it seems to be only encrypting new emails received after encryption has been enabled. Is it possible to have existing emails in my inbox encrypted using my key?

I am wondering the same thing. Through Thunderbird possibly? Can anyone from mailbox.org assist with this? I assumed importing my emails would encrypt them, but I guess that doesn't count as incoming email.

if you encrypt the inbox can you later export the emails , say back to gmail, or are they forever must live on mailbox.org?
