Why are my outgoing messages sent with an attachment: msg.asc?

Posted

I want to make sure I'm not sending a virus in this attachment because it automatically attaches itself to outgoing messages. Additionally, when I virus scan, 2 trojans turn up in thunderbird nearly every time. I delete them and they show up again the next day. Michael thanks for whatever advice.

I don't even remember installing enigmail, but the plugin is listed in my email security preferences. How do I disable it? Simply, untick the boxes in the enigmail program? thanks so much for your timely response to my previous message

The normal approach is have your calaendar hosted on a caldav compliant server (gmail is the obvious one)

Then have the calendar synced from the server to Thunderbird (Calendar on the network) and your android calendar.
