Distro : Fedora Core 5
Email Client : Thunderbird 0.94.0
Thunderbird Extensions: Enigmail 0.94.0
All of this worked fine in Fedora Core 4 and the Thunderbird that came with that distro. I do not remember the level of Enigmail that was installed then.
I have just installed Fedora Core 5 and the integration between Thunderbird/Enigmail/gnupg no longer works seamlessly.
Every time that I start to write a new email message, a message box pops up that says,
Enigmail: Enigmime Service not available
To permanently avoid this alert, either fix the problem or uninstall Enigmail using the OpenPGP->Preferences menu
I get this message at other times also, for example when I attempt to open an encrypted or signed message.
I have also installed Fedora Core 5 on my son's computer and then he also installed the Enigmail extension into his Thunderbird and it works just fine. Obviously there is something different in his installation and mine. We went through all of the Thunderbird, Thunderbird/OpenPGP and GnuPG preferences dialogs/tabs/subdialogs and compared his settings to mine. We could not locate anything that accounted for my inability to integrate Thunderbird/Enigmail/Gnupg and his ability so to do.
I set the enigmail debug option to my home directory and started a new mail message. This caused a file named enigdbug.txt to appear in my home directory. The contents of that file are:

Anybody have any ideas?
