It's a known problem. You are using Enigmail 0.94.0 with GnuPG 1.2.1. Enigmail
versions >= 0.90.0 *require* GnuPG 1.4.x for full functionality. Please upgrade
to GnuPG 1.4.2.

As far as a Thunderbird newsgroup, may I suggest instead the Enigmail mailing
list/newsgroup: enigmail at or news:public.mozdev.enigmail. The Enigmail
list is well versed with common problems experienced with using Thunderbird and
SeaMonkey with GnuPG.
