Enigmail, extension to the mail client of Mozilla Thunderbird and Mozilla Seamonkey

Enigmail is an extension to the mail client of Mozilla Thunderbird and Mozilla Seamonkey which allows users to access the authentication and encryption features provided by GnuPG (see screenshots).

Enigmail is open source and dually-licensed under the GNU General Public License and the Mozilla Public License.

You can download and install Enigmail from the Download page. See the Help page for post-installation instructions.
Enigmail is an email plugin. It cannot be run by itself.
You need a supported email client, the GNU Privay Guard (GnuPG), and a little patience. You may also need to install the proper Enigmail language pack.
Complete installation instructions can be found in the Quick start guide.
Main Features
  • Encrypt/sign mail when sending, decrypt/authenticate received mail
  • Support for inline-PGP (RFC 2440) and PGP/MIME (RFC 3156)
  • Per-Account based encryption and signing defaults
  • Per-Recipient rules for automated key selection, and enabling/disabling encryption and signing
  • OpenPGP key management interface

See the Features page for a full list of Enigmail's features.
Enigmail is cross-platform like all Mozilla products, although binaries are supplied only for selected platforms on this website. Enigmail uses inter-process communication to execute command-line versions of GnuPG to carry out encryption/authentication.
