That is not really true.  Thunderbird is free Software and one of the
most important properties of Free Software is that you are allowed to
distribute modified copies.

But beware, the Mozilla Corporation has a trademark on the name of
Thunderbird and that allows them to deny you the right to use the name
"Thunderbird" in any context related to trademark laws.  To make things
easier for you you can just grab the Icedove package from Debian:

 Icedove is an unbranded Thunderbird mail client suitable for free
 distribution. The goal of Thunderbird is to produce a cross platform stand-
 alone mail application using the XUL user interface language.

and distribute that along with Enigmail included.

Or use Claws-mail instead of Icedove.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Auschnahme regelt ein Bundeschgesetz.
