I am a long-time version of many different versions of Thunderbird,
enigmail, and multiple packages of gpg.

If TB 78 is going to have native support of openGPG encryption, then the
original person in the thread should be able to export all of the keys in
their key rings, and import all of those keys into TB 78, or am I missing
one of the gotchas with
TV 78 and it's openGPG encryption support.
