fwiw, i don't think this is a problem in the enigmail source package
itself, but rather it's drawn from what's available in
mozilla-devscripts during package build.

it's possible that a binary-only rebuild would resolve the explicit
dependency, but a better approach might be to try to put 1.9.7-2
directly into jessie.

[Pkg-mozext-maintainers] Bug#863264: enigmail: after icedove->thunderbird migration enigmail still depends on icedove package

Package: enigmail
Version: 2:1.8.2-4~deb8u1
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

After the migration from Icedove to Thunderbird, the enigmail package still
depends on Icedove. That means, deinstalling the icedove package deinstalls
enigmail and installing enigmail then again requires installation of Icedove:

This is not a big issue, since Thunderbird also works with the icedove package,
but it is a bit annoying, since Thunderbird is then named "Icedove ->
Thunderbird" in the GUI.
