Insofar as it being a critical differentiating feature for Thunderbird,
I think so yes. There is likely a niche to be made here for particularly
sensitive industries where endpoint encryption in an email client would
be a powerful selling point (something I am pushing myself with
Thunderbird and prospective clients). Having said that, Enigmail's setup
wizard is actually pretty straightforward (albeit generally still needs
a little technical know-how and explanation to get up and running for
non-technical users).
