I can confirm that enigmail 2:184.108.40.206-1 (from debian testing) installs
successfully on jessie and that it appears to fix the underlying
I can also confirm that upstream doesn't expect enigmail 1.8.x to work
with thunderbird 52.
I'm looking into creating a patch for enigmail 220.127.116.11-1 on jessie, and
will also look into such an update for stretch.
I think this could have been avoided if the newer version of thunderbird
had been marked as "Breaks: enigmail < 1.9.8" or something similar,
though it's not clear how the t-bird maintainers are supposed to know
that sort of information about every possible extension. Perhaps
enigmail needs to be special cased since it seems to have more of a
history of this kind of problem?
