I'd like to set up encryption for Thunderbird on a Mac running El Capitan 10.11.6. The default version does not install. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to get a version of this that works on my machine. Can't get access to the support either. It looks like I am at a dead end, so I am annoyed and sounding off.

It turned out that the problem was with GnuPG not liking my operating system. Once I got that resolved (not at all easy) Setting up Enigmail went fine.

That said, the logic of using Enigmail seems obtuse and is not well explained in the documentation. So I am now somewhat pleased, but not best pleased.

Note: I tried posting to support. I was not able to get past the captcha.

i don't know why this addon won't work with anything i did following instruction, etc.
Enigmail seems not to be able to locate ore recognise the gnuPG i've installed. even with the standard option to install the gnuPG.
no matter which app file i chose whether in gpg4win or gnupg folder, it just won't work.

Works well. Key management could be improved. Should allow fetching keys for contacts from cardbook extension.

Widerrufszertifikat kann icht erstellt werden, da eine Datei fehlt, Neu-Installation ist nicht möglich ... Schlecht und unbrauchbar, weil keine Lösung angeboten wird.

I tried to download pgp for my Firefox 52.9.0 and Thunderbird 52.9.1 and none of them worked, i.e. they wouldn't install. I have a PGP attachment and have no idea of how, or if, to view it. I have exactly... again, NO IDEA if there's any way to decript an attachment. :-(

Thunderbird 60.4.0 on Ubuntu 16.04 crashes when the Enigmail (2.0.9) dropdown menu in the "new mail" window is opened.

Enigmail works great. I have no issues with it, and I use it on both Windows and Linux. Excellent package.

I'm sad to write a negative review on what I think is an absolutely essential add-on for Thunderbird with no alternative at the moment. Unfortunately it just doesn't work. It's super buggy, there was a major update recently which changed pretty much everything such that the website/documentation is entirely out of date.

As a quick example, it's not possible to edit per-recipient rules; the menu option shown on the website simply doesn't exist anymore. And... those rules don't work anyway. Messages don't decrypt, though they sometimes seem to encrypt, but since it's hot-and-cold I can't really trust it.

I'm not sure if it's the PEP integration that changed everything so drastically but Enigmail simply doesn't work anymore. So sad, I loved this plugin for years. Back to manual gpg on the command line I guess...

EDIT:

Bumping my rating up because of the quick response from the dev and the fact that the plugin is at least basically functional now following his instructions!

I still feel like it's not great that the plugin's PEP integration not only (seems to) break PGP integration, but also reworks the menus so that they're completely different from what's in the documentation... and then the way to get the other menus back is to force a specific mode of encryption (rather than "show advanced menus" or something). Anyway, happy to be leaving a more positive review now.

It looks like you entered the "Enigmail/pEp" mode (which is a simplified mode for beginners). If you want to use the "classical" mode of Enigmail, the go to menu "Enigmail/pEp" > Preferences > Compatibility and select "Force using S/MIME and Enigmail"

Insists on encrypting drafts and template emails regardless of preferences and/or option settings! Why?!?! Enigmail will even encrypt drafts and template emails that are saved when OpenPGP has been disabled for a particular email identity/account! The only way to stop this function is to disable the Enigmail add-on entirely! I have removed and re-installed the add-on to no avail. I have removed and re-installed GnuPG to no avail! Enigmail was working fine and without this default encrypt drafts and templates just fine with TB version before the most recent v60 release.

Since upgrade to TB v60... Enigmail initially just choked altogether. Then after installing GnuPG, it now always throws an error message when attempting to send or decyrpt an email! The error message popup says libassuan-0.dll cannot be found even though I have the latest version of GnuPG 3.1.5 for Windows installed (gpg4win-3.1.5.exe).

Sadly until this problem is fixed - Enigmail is disabled.

Doesn't work anymore with thunderbird 6.* or it was changed to an unusable state. Don't know. Also, no use guide.

Does not work anymore with Thunderbird 63.0beta

Denna recension är för en tidigare version av tillägget (2.0.8). 

That's correct. Release versions of Enigmail typically don't work with beta versions of Thunderbird. You have to use the nightly builds of Enigmail provided on https://enigmail.net/index.php/en/download/nightly-build

Doesn't work on Arch Linux Thunderbird - Thunderbird Version is 60.0.4. There is no Error Message or something similiar... by clicking add to thunderbird nothing happens.... so enigma at this state is useless...

We had problems with 2.0.4 but we manage to fix them by sending parameter --no-mdc-warning to GPG and we were able to read older encrypted emails (without MDC). But this doesn't work with version 2.0.5 anymore (email is not opened). We have to use cmd line to decrypt. Woudn't it be better to warn the user and open the email anyway?

We can't do that. By displaying the message anyhow, you would end up exactly where we don't want you to be under any circumstance.

You would risk to be attacked via the "Efail" vulnerability without noticing. The only way not to end up there is to use the command line. Your workaround for version 2.0.4 is strongly disrecommended.
