Subject description: Enigmail for Thunderbird and KGpg
 

There are two approaches I like to recommend to people who want to send and receive encrypted messages. If you are already using the Thunderbird e-mail client, then working with encrypted messages is surprisingly straight forward. All you will need is the Thunderbird Enigmail add-on. Once the Enigmail add-on is installed, either through Thunderbird or as a package from the Enigmail website, a new menu labelled Enigmail will appear in your Thunderbird window. Click the Enigmail menu and select the Setup Wizard option. The wizard will walk you through the process of generating a security key, including setting a password on the key so only you can use it. Once your security key has been created, each time you start writing a new e-mail an Enigmail button will appear at the top of your Thunderbird window. Clicking the Enigmail button will give you the option of encryption and/or signing your message.

By the way, Tutanota is not mentionned, but this email client provides everything needed to send and receive encrypted emails. You don't have to compile a plugin, such as Enigmail, to work with another app. The developers have worked hard to make this email client as easy as possible to encrypt emails.

And in this day and age, anything that helps privacy is welcomed.
