Thunderbird/Enigmail: how to search encrypted messages
Posted on 2006-05-08
I'm using Thunderbird with Enigmail to work with encrypted messages. Everything is
fine except I can't use Thunderbird's search.
For instance, I know that an e-mail body contains the string '3828', but if I search the
folder for any e-mail that contains '3828' in its body Thunderbird does not find it,
since the e-mail is encrypted.
Is there a way to make it work?
PS. Yes, I've made the search just after decrypting the e-mail, so Thunderbird
has my passphrase for at least 5 minutes.
