Two years back I had big problems with crashes of Thunderbird 2 because of Enigmail 0.9 when I was switching from Tiger to Leopard. I had to stop using Enigmail completely.

About Enigmail 1.1.2 on Thunderbird 3.1.2 and Snow Leopard I can only say good things. It works fine, no crashes anymore. Excellent tool.

The bad thing is, no one is using encryption nowadays! Even worst, most people using web mail. Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo. They don't even know email programs. Strange times! Or I'm growing old.

The problem is that, the times when you really need encryption, like email communications with your bank, your lawyer, etc., it's either not available or would require training that it's not your job to provide. The casual use of encryption by open source geeks did not transfer to the mainstream, because their advocacy of it had no correlation with real world usage by normal people. It was too much about tin foil hats. Most folks don't care about encrypting everything, they only want to encrypt things that are truly sensitive or important. It's the barrier to that kind of selective use that's holding things back.

Great tool. And since GPGMail Plug-In has become incompatible with 10.6: Thunderbird3.0b4 and this have become a perfect replacement.

Forgot to mention: if you want to use Thunderbird 3.0b you have to use the Enigmail Nightlys because 0.96 does only support Thunderbird 2.

Since my upgrade from Tiger 10.4.11 to Leopard 10.5.2 Enigmail 0.95.6 freezes my Thunderbird 2.0.0.12 all the time when hitting Reply. And those mails are text-only and without any encryption.

On Tiger no problem at all, Enigmail runs perfectly. On Leopard PGP/GPG with Enigmail becomes unusable. Beware switchers!

This problem is already known in the Enigmail web forums. I hope there will be a solution soon.

This problem might only occur if you are running a PowerPC Mac, although I heard otherwise. A friend of mine with an Intel Mac has no problems at all.
