717Enigmail is a plug-in for Mozilla-based email clients (such as Thunderbird and
718Seamonkey) that is pretty simple to configure. In Seamonkey, you just go to
719Preferences -> Privacy &amp; Security -> Enigmail. There you enter your key
720email and that's it. You must first <c>emerge enigmail</c> to use it with
721Thunderbird. Then you can configure it by going to Edit -> Account Settings ->
722OpenPGP Security.

724
725<p>
726Mails that come with an untrusted pgp or gpg signature will be marked with a
727broken pen. Others that have good signatures will appear with a nice straight
728pen. Enigmail even comes with the ability to get keys from keyservers, but if it
729has problems it will print some very weird messages (but you still remember how
730to use the command line, right?).
