Are you referring to the remailer's pool or the outbound MTA's mail queue?
I would have thought that the former was encrypted.  But the latter
can't really be encrypted. It can live on an encrypted file system, but
all programs that access it will do so via an unencrypted method.
 I'm not sure if Mixmaster / YAMN decrypt messages as they receive
them or as they are processing them just before sending them outbound.
What state is a message that is sitting in an exit's pool while it waits
it's turn to go out?
