  • test TorBirdy 0.2.1 [todo test]
  • test TorBirdy 0.2.3 [functional]
  • test TorBirdy git master [todo test]
  • reply to tickets [todo]

Tested in VirtualBox and Qubes-Whonix using 13-14 upgraded templates.
Confirmed ships with dirmsgr and /etc/thunderbird/pref/30_whonix.js and /etc/skel/.gnupg/dirmngr.conf as per spec.

gpg2 works as expected, including --recv-keys.

TorBirdy - 0.21 functional testing is fine - tested POP3 and IMAP, and confirmed Tor transport at server side.

Not yet tested -0.2.3 or git master
