Decide what to do with Memory Hole in Thunderbird

Problem description:

The new version of Torbirdy enables a feature called Memory hole, which is shipped in Enigmail. This feature aims at not only encoding email text, but also the subject as well as referrers. This is done using some kind of encrypted meta headers and sending out emails with a generic subject. The mail client is now responsible for decrypting and displaying the meta headers. This works partly in Thunderbird, subjects can be decrypted while being sent with the generic subject line. But the referrers and reply-tos are broken, as the feature is not yet implemented and it has not even been defined entirely yet. These encrypted subjects also don't not work with Schleuder.


  • We disable Memory Hole in Tails.
  • We wait 1 more year before discussing again a strategy on when to enable it back.
  • We keep an eye open on what other MUA and encrypted mailing list software are doing.
  • Tweet about how cool Memory Hole is and that we want to enable soon but are blocked by other software.
