EDIT (Steve):
MailMate says:

MailMate checks the output of the gpg command used to sign. More specifically, it looks for SIG_CREATED and within this, MailMate finds the hashing method used for the signature. If this is SHA1 (or MD5 or RIPEMD-160) then MailMate creates a warning since the user is unlikely to use a deprecated hashing algorithm on purpose.

Somehow your settings triggers the use of SHA1, but that's not really the responsibility of MailMate. MailMate is just trying to be helpful by warning you that SHA1 is no longer safe to use.

The solution is to specifically set algo prefs in gpg.conf: personal-digest-preferences SHA512 SHA384 SHA256 SHA224
