Slowly migrating from evolution to Thunderbird, (version 1.0.2-1.3.2) obtained from the blag repo. It's quite good actually although a tad slow. I'm having trouble using the enigmail, (version 0.91.0) extension. Whenever I try to sign or encrypt any messages, it borks big time. This error occours whether I use keys generated by myself or enigmail. A dialouge box comes up with the following text. Stuck big time. I'm also having trouble with certification verification.

Code:
end operatioin aborted
Error - bad passphrase
gpg command line and output:
/usr/bin/gpg -charset utf8 -batch -no-tty -status-fd2 -comment'Using GnuPg with
Fedora - http://enigmail.mozdev.org' -clearisgn -u 0x88804D6AD -use-agent
gpg: gpg-agent is not available in this session
gpg: can't querry password in batchmode
gpg: invalid passphrase; please try again....

wrong password - that's what's so confusing. Key's can't be generated unless they are right. You need to enter a p/word and confirm it. T/bird's quite nice but this is weird
:oops:
