Sounds to me like perhaps you forgot to change the key ID associated
with your account in Enigmail.

In Thunderbird 1.x (possibly slightly different in Thunderbird 2) it's a
matter of going to Edit > Account Settings, then finding "OpenPGP
Security" under your mail account.  If my guess is correct, you'd see
the "Use specific OpenPGP key ID" radio button set with your old key ID
(0xC8D5E165) in the field.  From there, you could select your new key
with the "Select Key ..." button, or you could just hit the "Use email
address of this identity to identify OpenPGP key" setting instead.

If that's already set to the right key, you might just have to suck it
up and look under the hood--that is, check the console application to
make sure what you're trying to do works from there.

Good fortune
