We are happy to announce Enigmail 2.0.12 for Postbox 7!

Postbox is a commercial email client based on Thunderbird. We have cooperated with the Postbox developers to make Enigmail ready for their newest version, Postbox 7. With version 7, Postbox introduces a new feature called "Lab Experiments", and we are proud to announce that Enigmail is the first "experiment" available.

Compared to Enigmail on Thunderbird, there are a few notable differences in functionality:

  • No support for the pEp Junior mode on Postbox
  • Composing messages is restricted to PGP/MIME (no support for composing Inline-PGP messages)
  • No Enigmail Header Bar when reading messages - click on the pen/lock icon to get details about the decryption/verification status
  • The Enigmail menu is only available when composing messages

We are happy to announce Enigmail v2.1! New features in the release:

  • A new simplified setup wizard will first try to find out if you already used encrypted emails before, and then proceed in the most suitable way.
  • On Windows and macOS, there is an automatic check for updates to GnuPG.
  • Autocrypt: implemented key-gossip and updates to known keys
  • If GnuPG 2.1 or newer are used, then key creation will default to ECC keys
  • Interaction with keyservers has been rewritten from scratch, using Thunderbird-internal functions to access the keyservers.
  • Full support for keys.openpgp.org, which is used as default keyserver.
