I am reopening this bug as the latest update (apt-cache policy enigmail shows:
  Installed: 2:
  Candidate: 2:
  Version table:
 *** 2: 0
500 http://somemirrorthatIuse/ oldstable/updates/main powerpc Packages 500 http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates/main powerpc Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     2:1.8.2-4~deb8u1 0

seems to have broken enigmail support, at least on the ppc (powerpc64) arch.

After updating and restarting Thunderbird, the enigmail button has vanished...

If it was backported from Debian 9 without further adaptations, this is the cause:

Debian 9 doesn't support powerpc (only ppc-le, for little-endian) for some reason.

However, ppc support shouldn't be broken on Debian 8 as long as 8 is supported.

In advance, thank you for taking this into account and taking necessary action.

And let me know if I can be of any further help, this is a productivity killer for me.
