Known issues

After upgrading to Tails 3.8, you have to go through the Enigmail Setup Wizard again every time you restart Tails.

Your OpenPGP keys and your per-recipient rules are preserved.

To avoid going through the Enigmail Setup Wizard, you can execute the following command in a terminal before starting Thunderbird:

echo 'pref("extensions.enigmail.configuredVersion", "2.0.7");' >> ~/.thunderbird/profile.default/preferences/0000tails.js

This bug will be fixed in the next version of Tails. (#15693)

See the list of long-standing issues.
