Hi,

I have been receiving some PGP emails. I have set up my Secret and Public Keys in Thunderbird. When I do a search in the bar at the top Ctrl+k and also Ctrl+Shift+K then the contents of the PGP encrypted emails are not searched. Is there some way to search through these? Or is there some plugin that would allow PGP emails once received to remain unencrypted so they could be searched, please?

This is a known issue.

There is an existing bug for this. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=280588
