I'm a Mac user 10.4.8 of Thunderbird 1.5.0.7 & am wondering how 
"Enabling FIPS" will improve my security? I can't seem to find any 
explanation of  FIPS under Thunderbird  help.

FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standard) is a method of encryption 
that can be used with TLS (Transport Layer Security)


It is a standard set by the US Federal Government for encrypting data. 
It should be used if the device and service mandate it. Otherwise do not 
use it.

So in Thunderbird it is not necessary, & doesn't add any important level 
of security?

Its adds FIPS - which if the device or service you use requires it, is 
quite neccessary. It does add a very high level of security when in use 
(which is why its mandated for Federal Government computers and systems)
If your system/service/device doesnt require it, then dont use it.

Use of FIPS requires you to have a password for each security device in 
the system

EAI support in Thunderbird
In the process of doing background research for a blog post I'm writing, I started looking at what we need to do to be fully compliant with EAI specifications. To my knowledge, no other major email client supports EAI (i.e., no major webmail clients, not Apple Mail, Outlook, etc.), so if we implemented it, we would be one of the first, which gives us a very nice feature list we can add. The downside is that email servers don't also appear to be moving quickly to implement it, so I may end up patching Dovecot and Exim to test this functionality (I'm currently setting...
