this might help:

1. Open the profile folder of Thunderbird.
2. Open the file pref.js with a text editor.
3. Find lines similar to : user_pref("mail.identity.id1.pgpkeyId", 
4. Replace "0xC8D5E165" by "0x2AD07B94".
5. Save your changes.

You can get the same effect by editing the point "OpenPGP-Security" in your
Email-account settings.
