So I may confirm my understanding...
- Enigmail and GPGTools are orthogonal components re: Thunderbird.
Enigmail is something like the interface to the underlying GPG
implementation. In many cases on Mac OS X, including mine, this
underlying implementation is indeed GPGTools (which I use not only for
Thunderbird but for most/all OpenPGP operations).
- Also, you are not suggesting that the choice is Enigmail vs
GPGTools. But rather that they have different levels of specificity re:
and integration into Thunderbird.
Are these notions correct? Thanks!!
