OpenPGP -> Display Expert Settings -> Sending -> Add My Own Key to the
Recipient List

You may have issues if you're sending from an account that doesn't
have a key set for it.  This is usually automatic as long as you have
a valid secret key for the email you're sending from.  Otherwise you
may need to plug in the keyid manually in Tools -> Accounts- > OpenPGP
Security (under the desired account).
