I Ask someone to send an encrypted mail to me,
Or send on to yourself. Drag it to the desktop so it is saved as an .eml file.
Now try to open the .eml file with Notes client 
even the notes client says portions are encrypted:
[Portions of this MIME document are encrypted with a Notes certificate and cannot be read.]

Sounds like you converted an encrypted document from Notes format to MIME format
"[Portions of this MIME document are encrypted with a Notes certificate and cannot be read.]"

If the $Seal field and other relevant fields are gone due to a CD->MIME conversion, you're going to have a very hard time parsing that data.  Can you save the document in Notes format instead?
