Hi Carsten-- Thank you very much for your work for keeing thunderbird ESR up-to-date in debian. Sorry that enigmail is an ongoing problem for that work.

I think this is a great idea. I wrote mail to the enigmail mailing list earlier this month to see whether there was any existing work we could piggy-back off of: https://admin.hostpoint.ch/pipermail/enigmail-users_enigmail.net/2017-July/004524.html I got some interesting pointers/suggestions in response, but no specific code. I'd welcome help from anyone who wants to write a full-stack test that we could use for an enigmail autopkgtest, though. I'm imagining an autopkgtest that does (at least) the following: * sets up a local MTA (postfix?) * sets up a local IMAP server (dovecot?) * creates accounts Alice and Bob on both servers - both accounts should be able to send and receive mail * creates two thunderbird profiles (maybe using different system user accounts?) * triggers the enigmail setup process on both accounts * exchanges keys between the accounts (how?) * Alice sends encrypted mail to Bob * Bob reads encrypted mail With that in place, we could talk about embellishing the test suite to include things like attachments, multiparty mail, etc. Does this seem feasible/useful? Is anyone interested in working on this with me? > Hopefully we find some time to talk about that all at DebCamp/DebConf? Sadly, i won't make it to debconf this year. --dkg
