In this article, you’ll learn how to install, setup, and use the Mozilla Thunderbird email client for secure, encrypted email using GnuPG and the Enigmail Mozilla Thunderbird extension.

You’ll also get to tackle the basics of using GnuPG with Enigmail—just enough to get you started, as GnuPG is a very powerful suite that can extend to other applications.

Don’t worry though, GnuPG is very well documented and you’ll be presented with some links online at the end of this article to get you started.
