Show Informative message and fixing steps if subkey of a sec/pub key is expired

Reported by steve | June 19th, 2014 @ 07:28 PM | in 1.2 (closed)

if the sub key expires, users end up in a scenario, where they are unable to encrypt mails. GPGMail does not give any info.

GPG Keychain Access should inform the user if a sub key is expired, as soon as the user opens GPG Keychain Access and any key with expired sub key exists.

Show the following info on each GPG Keychain Access startup as long as the sub key is not renewed:

Attention: Your Subkey for the following key has expired

%&Name mail-address KeyID

Please create a new Subkey.

1. Double click the sec/pub entry with ShortID %&
2. select SubKey tab
3. Click "+" to create a new Subkey

Please also see the following GPGMail ticket to implement a warning there as well:

+1 since I had another user in live-chat running into this on 2014-08-05

We also should keys with expired subkeys in a clear way and easy to identify in the GPG Keychain main window key listing.
