S/MIME encryption in Thunderbird



I have installed a Thawte Freemail certificate in Thunderbird in order to be able to send and receive digitally signed and encrypted email.  The problem is that it appears that regarding when to encrypt, TB's only two options are to never encrypt or always encrypt, though this can be manually overridden on a per-message basis.  It seems to me that the most desirable behavior for most people would be to encrypt by default when possible, and to send in plain text otherwise.  Is this in fact not an option, and if so why?  The Enigmail OpenPGP extension allows this behavior.  I chose to go the S/MIME route since it was easier, not requiring an extension (so far I've avoided them).
