last i knw enigmail still wasn't working with T-Bird: communication error w/ Gnu-PG client

if they used GPGME instead of OpenPG they'd probably do better.

I've been playing with alternatives; Evolution seems good although I think I actually prefer the CLAWS approach

I think CLAWS is, simply put: better software.

I had to change 1 line in the .gnupg/gpg-agent.conf to

Code: Select all

pinentry-program /usr/bin/pinentry-gnome3

It was pinentry-gtk3
Now it works as it used to do

thanks

i used to follow the enigmail newsletter; they fussed a lot with this pinentry program.

i'm not convinced that writing in pseudo code and trying to get a program to run cross platform is really the best idea. the new F-Fox seems to run good though :)

A combo of thunderbird and web mail for me.

Some days though I have nostalgia for some of the long gone e-mail clients I used to use like Eudora and Pegasus mail.

I have been using Evolution for a couple years now. I just liked it better than Thunderbird. Probably because of Evolution's similarity to Office Mail.

Protonmail; it was great to not feel Gmail breathing down my neck anymore. Private, simple to use, and am very happy with it. :)
