I use this great add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I am a true fan of GnuPG when sending e-mail's. Enigmail makes is so easy to manage keys and to send encrypted e-mail's!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (18.104.22.168).
it works Rated 5 out of 5 stars
hi.. this addon was perfect but it does not work with default settings under debian after update to 22.214.171.124 unless you create custom wrap launcher with unset GPG_AGENT_INFO which works for me.
Problem: GnuPG reported an error in the communication with gpg-agent (a component of GnuPG).
- using debian 8 64bit - thunderbird latest and this extension latest.
Please report your issue to Debian
I'm working closely with the Debian package maintainers to avoid such issues. The problem you are describing is not common to all Debian users; I would strongly recommend that you report it to the Debian bug tracker, such that knowledgeable people can look into it and either help you fix it, or fix the issue in Debian.
No longer useable Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Enigmail used to work like a charm, but broke about a year ago. Thunderbird hangs on sending emails 4 out of 5 times, and constantly requires you to kill gpg2 in order to keep working.
It's really disappointing, as it seemed to be the first extension that actually got email encryption right and used to be extremely useful.
Do you use the latest version of Enigmail? It should not make Thunderbird hang any longer. Otherwise, please report your issue at the Enigmail Mailing List and we will try to fix your problem.
enigmail 126.96.36.199 Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Korrektur downgraden auf 1.9.7This review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
unbrauchbares update, bin total frustriert Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Seit dem letzten update von thunderbird geht enigmail nicht mehr. Vor allem aber sind meine gespeicherten Entwürfe nicht mehr lesbar! Ich hatte keine Möglichkeit, sie unverschlüsselt zu speichern (auch blöd!), und jetzt sind sie weg.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.7).
Keyserver up/downloads unusable. Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This version( 184.108.40.206) is incompatible with Thunderbird 52 that makes keyserver up/downloads unusable.
Download version 1.9.7
No warning when uploading keys Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This addon does not provide sufficient warning when you click upload public keys. (Sufficient warning = a popup explaining that uploaded public keys can't be removed from the key servers once uploaded)
This can lead to leaking of private email addresses that you wish to keep hidden from the public.
Nub To PGP Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Just started using today, when I looked into securing my email myself (especially after "another" Yahoo incident) I thought it would be daunting, thanks for proving me wrong. keep up the good work, and Thanks Pat.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (220.127.116.11).
better integraion with S/MIME Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Fantastic add-on ,
i am using both type of encryption PGP/MIME and S/MIME and will love to see better interface to manage both of them from one place.
having a radio button inside the composing windows toolbar that enable selecting either S/MIME or PGP/MIME
so selecting one, will automatically deselect/disable the other one.
I love this one Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is the most confortable way to use PGP on an E-Mail Client at all. I'm very exiting waiting what will happen, when PEP will be integrated here.
Only Problem I'm having on Debian: IceDove (Thunderbird) crashes at random events. In the console this seems to be a problem with Enigmail.
Best extension in the world Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Best extension in the world... really... too easy to use emails encryption with Enigmail.
Easy to install and works well Rated 5 out of 5 stars
As recommended in some forums, it is best to install GPG BEFORE Enigmail.
i tried it on Win 7 and Win 10 pro, TB 48.4.0 with GPG4Win:
very easy installation,
en- and decrypting and/or singing of Emails work smooth and easily. Thank you very much!
Wie in manchen Foren schon gesagt, ist es empfehlenswert ZUERST GPG und dann erst Enigmail zu installieren.
Ich versuchte es mit Win7 und Win 10pro, TB 48.4.0 mit GPG4Win:
sehr einfache Installation,
Ver- und Entschlüsseln und/oder Signieren von Nachrichten läuft sanft und problemlos.
아주 좋습니다 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
거의 완벽에 가깝다고 할 만큼 좋습니다. 사용하기 편리하게 UI가 구성되어 있고 편리한 자동기능들이 많습니다. 시각적으로도 보기 좋도록 잘 디자인되어 있습니다. 키 관리까지 가능하도록 만들어 놓은것이 아주 좋네요.
PGP/MIME을 지원하는것도 마음에 듭니다.
Setup auf dem Mac wie geschmiert! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Ich hatte 2013 noch die oben genannten Probleme, auch nach einer Encryption-Party haben die Erweiterungen auf dem Rechner geschlummert. Dieses Mal ging es supereinfach. Danke! Dafür geht in Firefox die Überleitung zu Paypal/Spende nicht... nur das Fenster verdunkelt sich etwas, sorry. Mac PBP 15" end '11, OS 10.10.5, FF 48.0.1This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.5).
Works Well, but Awkward Installation and Configuration Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Downloaded, added, found that it hung on attempts to download GnuPG. Then, after manually downloading GPG4Win (GnuPG is the Linux variant), the wizard would not start. I ended-up having to generate a key with GPG4Win, but the Setup Wizard (and other settings) can be found under Enigmail in the drop-down menu with 3 horizontal bars to the top right of the main Thunderbird window and, from that, keys can be imported and other changes implemented.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.3).
Linux mint 17, problems with 1.9.2 Rated 3 out of 5 stars
To use it on Linux Mint: I'm using Enigmail add-on 1.8.2, Thunderbird 45.1.0. Enigmail 1.8.2 (installed by Synaptic). I've uninstalled seahorse-daemon, seahorse, keyring, gpgv2. I have installed gnupg, gnupg-agent, gnupg2. I've deleted in home hidden folders: .gnupg/ , .thunderbird/. Finally on terminal :
sudo nano ~/.gnupg/gpg-agent.conf
and add the line "use-standard-socket" (this will allow Enigmail to communicate with gpg-agent)
After reboot Enigmail in Thunderbird works.
HiDPI support missing Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Great tool but please add HiDPI icons for e-mail status indication. With 2x scaling factor (GNOME3) the icons look just too blurry and plus too old-school anyway.
With more and more high resolution displays out there, this is really a thing.
Saving a draft is always encrypted Rated 4 out of 5 stars
When I toggle encryption and signing off inside the compose message window and save the mail as draft, it's always encrypted.
Because I can't find an option for this behavior I guess it's a bug.
thank you for the reply - this settings must have been added some time ago and I just didn't see it since then ...
That's a feature, not a bug. You can turn off encryption of drafts in the account settings under OpenPGP Settings.
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Lack of some options, but not critical
