More bits on this thunderbird/openpgp/enigmail whack-a-mole: upstream is planning to leave all those bits disabled by default until thunderbird 78.2 (end of august) (per https://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird:OpenPGP), even if all basic bits are here there are still a lot of things missing: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird:OpenPGP:Status So my plan is to make sure OpenBSD 6.8 ships with thunderbird 78 (68 will be dead by then), users of enigmail (esp. users with keys on smartcards, which requires gpgme) are *strongly* encouraged to test support in advance (i'll continue building/providing builds for 78.x on my repo) of the upcoming lock, using a distinct profile (or keep backups). Direct all your feedback upstream. Here's what i plan to add to pkg/README: Thunderbird 78 provides OpenPGP email encryption via RNP, which was previously optionally available via the Enigmail extension and GnuPG. All basic OpenPGP features (encrypt/decrypt/sign) are available out of the box. Support for smartcards is incomplete, only decryption works at this time, signing is not yet implemented. To use the experimental smartcard support, which is implemented as a fallback to GnuPG for secret key operations, install the gpgme package. no, i wont maintain two branches of the thunderbird port in CVS :) Landry
