Thunderbird 78 - OpenPGP - manually select key for recipient

Hey everyone,

how can I manually select the key that is used for encrypting the message to the recipient?

At the moment Thunderbird automatically determines the "right" key based on the e-mail of the recipient (at least it seems to me that it works like that). In Enigmail I could choose the key manually (when no matching key was found for the recipient).

Why do I want to do that? I´m communicating with an organization that decrypts mails at a central mail gateway and therefore uses ONE single key for all recipients within the organization. Sadly the recipients within the organization are not stored as aliases in the PGP key (which would be possible).

Any help would be highly appreciated.
