For gpgme, you only need to use:
  set crypt_use_gpgme = yes
  set pgp_sign_as = <your-id>
  set crypt_autosign = yes

Additionally, if you want to encrypt email you send to others with your
key too, use:
  set pgp_self_encrypt = yes
  set pgp_self_encrypt_as = <your-id>

I also use the following to encrypt when possible, and check signatures
  set crypt_verify_sig = yes
  set crypt_opportunistic_encrypt = yes

Try deleting every other encryption related options and see if that
