Enigmail is a security add-on for Mozilla Thunderbird that allows you to use OpenPGP to encrypt and digitally sign your emails and decrypt and verify messages you receive.
Enigmail enables Mozilla Thunderbird and SeaMonkey to send and receive digitally signed and/or encrypted messages using the OpenPGP standard.
To provide the crypto-features, Enigmail requires GnuPG to be installed. The latest versions of GnuPG contain the latest security fixes, so it should be up to date. If your operating system does not supply GnuPG by itself, you may download GnuPG for Windows
