The maintainer hasn't updated the package despite its having been flagged
out-of-date for months. There are also some comments including one about a
404'd source URL from over a month ago, so I have disowned the package.

It should not be deleted simply because the plugin is available via
Thunderbird's add-on manager. It is often very useful to be able to install
plugins for all users via a system package. This is why packages are provides
for other Mozilla add-ons, such as firefox-adblock-plus in [community].

Does the package include any stand-alone functionality? If not, then it should
be renamed "thunderbird-enigmail". I see that there are multiple enigmail
packages on the AUR, but only some of them use the "thunderbird-" prefix.
