This add-on makes me feel like a kid again. Encoding messages to friends....and really it was ONE friend. And he never responded. That was dark.

BUT!... I love this app because it's real world crypto-security.

Top Addon 评分 5,满分5星

Ich nutze Enigmail seit Jahren ohne Probleme. Sehr gute Arbeit. Danke!
Das Einzige, was mir nicht gefällt, ist, dass man die Passphrase nicht mehr aus dem Zwischenspeicher löschen kann, da diese nun vom gpg-agent verwaltet wird.

Very cool addon.

I just love it, and PGP is one of my favorite way to crypt (after SSL and SSH of course :D).

It's just awesome, nothing more to say.

to @ChrisDG : Il apporte un moyen très simple d'encrypter ou signer tes messages plutôt que de passer trois heures à générer une clé qui ne sera jamais accepté parce que "le moyen SSL utilisé est trop utilisé blahblah".

PGP est cool pour l'encryption ou la signature digitale de messages, et cet addon simplifie toutes les tâches.
Selon moi il est parfait.

Great extension, but the defaults could be better 评分 4,满分5星

This extension works very well, but I dislike the default of plain text signing. It's a great way to annoy everyone on a mailing list... It seems the rationale is to have better support for receivers using bad mail clients, but I doubt they're verifying emails via copy-paste if they can't be bothered to use another client.

Qu'apporte Enigmail ? 评分 3,满分5星

J'ai du mal à voir ce qu'apporte Enigmail par rapport aux options de base de Thunderbird:
.Chiffrer ce message
.Signer numériquement ce message


It can't install in FossaMail 评分 1,满分5星

Alright, I gave it a look and it can't install in FM 24.2.0b1- but it could install in TB 24.2.

I also went to the support page which then insisted on creating an account at Sourceforge. I no longer trust SF due to it's recent changes and the account also could not be created no matter how much I juggled things around. Even if that did work that is an awful lot of steps!

If it can be modified to work correctly I will come back and write a better review. Until then it is 1*

Fonctionne parfaitement sous Win7 ou Fedora19.
Dommage que ça ne fonctionne qu'en texte brut, mais on va pas chipoter :)

It's a wonderful tool and essential for secure mail sending. It is easy to use under Linux and Windows upto Win7.It doesn't work with Thunderbird 24.1.1 and Windows 8.But at least it is better to do without Win 8 than Enigmail!
Hello Patrick, unfortunately I don't see a possibility to answer to your statement directly, so I would like to tell you in this way, that I made the experiences with Enigmail and Thunderbird in Win8 by my self. I have screenshots, which show, that Enigmail 1.9 is not compatible to Thunderbird 24.1.1
I run several Linux systems as well as Win 7/8/8.1, but it is only in Win 8 and 8.1. not compatible.
I don't know why.

Why would Enigmail not work on Windows 8? I cannot see any reason for this, and I know of many users who use this combination successfully.

Mandatory addon for Thunderbird. Works flawlessly with the newest version. If you value your privacy, this is your best choice for protecting yourself.


Searching the content of encrypted mails is not possible 评分 2,满分5星

Encryption and decryption of mails works perfectly but searching for a content in the mails is not possible any more. With this restriction it is not possible for me to use enigmail.

Not compatible with Thunderbird 12.0.1.? 评分 1,满分5星

Just wanted to install the latest version but it got this message: "Enigmail could not be installed because it is not compatible with Thunderbird 12.0.1." Do you have any plans to make Enigmail compatible? Many thanks!


Thunderbird 12 is not quite recent anymore and has known security bugs. I'd recommend you upgrade to the current stable version of Thunderbird - v17. Alternatively, you'll find a working version of Enigmail by clicking on "view other versions". You would need Enigmail v1.4.2 for Thunderbird 12.

Need upgrading? 评分 5,满分5星

Been working great. But it now has to be updated for SeaMonkey 2,19.


An update for SeaMonkey is in progress. Meanwhile you can use a nightly build from http://enigmail.net/download/nightly.php

Does not work 评分 3,满分5星

This plugin isn't working. Whenever I "encrypt" my e-mails, the recipient - when asked to enter the passphrase - is able to just view them by just closing the window. This add-on is either not working or I'm doing something terribly wrong. Hm...


Enigmail is an excellent and classic add-on! 评分 5,满分5星

Don’t be put off by the review below! With a willingness to learn a little about encryption and secure and trusted communication, and a bit of common sense, you can set up encrypted e-mail on Thunderbird practically by selecting the defaults.

As pointed out in the details above, you will need GnuPG, so the first thing to do is go to http://www.gpg4win.org/ and download GPG4Win (this is for Windows, obviously). After installing it, you will find a folder on your desktop containing the GPG4Win Compendium PDF. This contains an excellent simple explanation of the principles behind secure and trusted communication, and why you should care about it. I have put the PDF on my tablet and read it repeatedly. You have to know a little about the fundamentals before you can understand what the e-mail setup is actually about.

Now start Thunderbird, and you should see an OpenPGP menu item. There is a setup wizard to get you started. I just selected defaults where I wasn’t sure, and had the whole thing set up in less than half-an-hour. Nothing to do with the command line. It was simpler than setting up Outlook to do the same. But you have to know what’s going on, so read the Compendium first.

If all you want is to send someone an encrypted message once a month, I recommend the Simple Text Encryptor tool from here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/simpletextenc/; you just copy and paste your message into the top box and it comes out encrypted to AES 128-bit standard at the bottom – not quite as simple as pressing “E” but not far off!

You don’t need to attend a seminar to use this tool, but you do need to be prepared to learn something new, and to do a little more than press E.

We may not take it particularly seriously at the moment, but there are countries where tools like this are an absolute necessity to maintain the human right of privacy, so it’s great that they are available free. And the way the UK and US governments are heading, we may need such tools sooner than we think. Thank you, Patrick Brunschwig and the GnuPG team!

Finally, as a REVIEWER, you NEED to be AWARE that if you type INANE reviews with LOTS of CAPITALS, and “inappropriate use” of quotation marks, and odd *placement* of *star* symbols, it’s going to REALLY HACK some people OFF, as well as GIVING them SERIOUS DOUBTS about your LEVEL of MATURITY.
