Doesn't work on 64-bit Vista Thunderbird 3.0.4. Both Enigmail 1.1 and 0.9 say they are incompatible.

0.9 worked great under Thunderbird 2, is an awesome tool. Our entire company uses it instead of Outlook and are happy to have it. Hope the compatibility bugs get worked out.

Incompatibilidad con x86_64 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

"Enigmail" no pudo instalarse porque no es compatible con el tipo de versión de Icedove (Linux_x86_64-gcc3). Por favor, póngase en contacto con el autor de este elemento acerca del problema.

Incompatible ! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Same problem as grouss has reported below. Installation reports Enigmail 1.1-tb.linux to be incompatible to Linux_x86_64-gcc3 and Thunderbird 3.0.4, Ubuntu 10.x.

Is there a 64bit-issue?

This addon works flawlessly. The setup assistant automatically finds the key associated with my identities, the UI tells me about encrypted and decrypted messages automatically, and I don't have to manage all things by myself. This is great, congrats to the Enigmail Team!

I've installed it, found I don't need it, and that it seems to slow Thunderbird boot-up times considerably.

It would be helpful to know how to uninstall this add-on. (Win XP, sp3; Thunderbird 3.0.4)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1). 

How to uninstall

Enigmail is uninstalled like any other add-on in Thunderbird: go to the menu Tools > Add-ons; click on the entry for Enigmail and select the button "Uninstall".

Enigmail works on current nightly Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have been using enigmail for some years and although it is maintained essentially by a single developer it has generally worked very well, including for nightly builds of Thunderbird. Occasionally changed in Thunderbird make it incompatible with Enigmail until the enigmail is patched and rebuilt. This happened in the past month, but today the latest nightly version of Enigmail works beautifully with the current nightly of Thunderbird (3.1pre on 3rd May 2010).

It would be nice if Mozilla took on board this really valuable and functional extension and supportd it as a core part of its product. After all GPG encryption for email is essential to a significant number of email users. Some users who are using other mail clients may switch to Thunderbird if Enigmail was available by default. It would be nice if more developers were able to keep the extension patched as the Thunderbird developers update and extend Thunderbird in preparation for its next important release.

A Must-Have Addon for Thunderbird, great work!

I went to Enigmail's website (http://enigmail.mozdev.org/) and went to the Downloads page - loaded the appropriate version for the appropriate platform, e.g. x86_64) and the version of Thunderbird you're using, e.g. 3. It worked!

It does show that Thunderbird is not installing the correct Enigmail version into Thunderbird application properly

""Enigmail" could not be installed because it is not compatible with your Thunderbird build type (Linux_x86_64-gcc3). Please contact the author of this item about the problem."

I found out, that the 64bit Version provided on the development homepage works. However, Thunderbird itself tries to install the wrong version.

The previous comment tells me that the poster probably didn't read the instructions, clearly stating that GnuPG is required. Installed that first, then Enigmail and all is well.

Critical installation information missing Rated 3 out of 5 stars

In order to install the Enigmail plugin on Linux, one needs to run SeaMonkey or Thunderbird as root, or as administrator on Vista and Windows XP. Attempting to install it while running the application from a regular user account will cause the installation to fail with a cryptic "Unexpected error -211" message, totally unhelpful to people who haven't memorized the Mozilla error code tables. This critical piece of information can be found on forums, but should have been added to the plugin description here to avoid frustration for users. That's why I give the application a meager 3 stars.

Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

you'd think things like Enigmail would be the default/norm/standard method for email. but its not. It is a shame enigmail isn't included with thunderbird by default as well... but that's been said a million times, enough about that.

Enigmail is a add-on that transforms email, rather than Thunderbird. With Enigmail, you generate a key that can be used to identify/authenticate you, yourself. It means you can 'sign' your email with this key, and it can be 3rd party verified that it really did come from you and no one else. If any/every email was done this way... you could feel confident that when your bank emailed you, (or other very sensitive matter), it really came from them. Email scams would nearly cease to exist. Spam would follow just as quickly and email would be more like personal mail.

The second benefit (if you choose) of Enigmail is full encryption. Lets face it, Gmail admins must read your email, if they don't, then maybe the don't, but its my word against theirs... but those ads that seem to know what your emails about didn't get that way from someone guessing, and who knows what metrics they keep on what ads they've sent to you (after all, that know its you, your email address doesn't change). Full encryption means without the key (think of it as a password that only receiver gets to know), no one can read your email.
