Cannot import personal openpgp key in End2End encryption setting.

I cannot use OpenPGP encryption on one of my email addresses, because its private key does not appear in the End-to-End encryption of the account setting. Exactly, I can have added the private key through the wizard of the account setting, but there is no private key in the End-to-End encryption of the account setting instead of the private key appearing in the OpenPGP key manager.

The other email accounts are OK, i.e. I can use OpenPGP encryption on the accounts. The differences from the troubled email account are followings: - The troubled email account uses Ed255 not ECDSA algorithm. - Name of the troubled email account includes UTF-8 Japanese characters. - The troubled email account also registers S/MIME private.

Please give me advice on this problem. Thanks.

I have installed Thunderbird to a laptop I have on longterm loan.

1. I can't find how to log out of the account. Even though I have removed the password, when I open TB all my emails are accessible. There is a pop up window asking for a password, but it can be closed, and all the emails remain accessible. I am not able to set up a different Windows user account because of protocols set up on the laptop. How can I log out when I've finished accessing TB?

2. I have set up my account using IMAP, and all my folders have imported correctly, except for the generic ones. They are in Spanish. I live in Spain. Amongst he languages in the settings of TB, Spanish is not present. In my original GMX account interface and settings there is no Spanish in use. I have configured the language settings in TB that I can see, to English, and restarted the laptop, but to no effect.

3. Is it possible to send emails from my original GMX account that will be sent via TB and therefore pEp.

4. What role does Mailvelope play in all this? Is it correct that in order to have the correct encryption process, I need to use TB in conjunction with pEp and Mailvelope.

I have never used a MUA before. It seems to be complicated. I would rather use the interfaces of my original email accounts (GMX and Protonmail), as they are more user friendly than the poor design of TB .

Thanks.

Hi there.

I try to find out how to attach my public key to my messages by default. The faq (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/openpgp-thunderbird-howto-and-faq#w_why-does-thunderbird-automatically-send-my-public-key-whenever-i-digitally-sign-an-email) says that if I sign my messages, my public key will be attached automatically, but that's not the case. I always have to click security -> attach my public key, otherwise Thunderbird will not attach my public key. What am I making wrong?
