Sorry for the confusion.  Then yes, I was aware.  Just that I like the integration with GPG, its keyring, its agent, and not just some level of it for private keys, neither what Thunderbird ended up selecting to support PGP moving forward.  I do understand the change might be OK for some, or even be consider much better than using GPG by some as well, if not all, but I'd really like to move away from Thunderbird.  It's just hard finding options...

Thanks !
