What is this all about?

Enigmail is a security extension to Mozilla Thunderbird and Seamonkey. It enables you to write and receive email messages signed and/or encrypted with the OpenPGP standard.

Sending and receiving encrypted and digitally signed email is simple using Enigmail.

When starting it for the first time, you are guided through the basic setup. We also prepared a new users' guide that explains how to use OpenPGP.

How should I start?

New users should look at our Quick start guide.

Then install GnuPG and the right Enigmail package for your system.

Is there a manual?

Of course there is. ;-) To find out all about configuration options, or in case you encounter problems, please first have a look into our user manual.

Where can I get help?

The best place to get help is our mailing list. User support forums are also available.

How can I contribute?

We'd love it if you did! Telling other people about Enigmail, helping out in the forums and on mailing lists, giving feedback on the manual, translating Enigmail into another language, reporting and fixing bugs, or helping out with coding.

What do I need?

Enigmail is an email plugin. It cannot be run by itself.

You need a supported email client, the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG), and a little patience.

Complete installation instructions can be found in the Quick start guide.
