Error while importing Disroot GPG key in Thunderbird

Hi all!

I just started configuring my new email account, I generated a GPG key, and I could not import it in Thunderbird. Running the latter from the command line, I see this message:

JavaScript error: resource://enigmail/openpgp.jsm -> resource://enigmail/stdlib/openpgp-lib.js, line 16105: Error: Ascii armor integrity check on message failed: 'jdNG' should be '1ItB'

I tried two times, same error. I tried with a simple name without special characters, and also with a simple passphrase with only numbers and letters, and I still could not generate a valid key. Anything else I can do to try to diagnose the issue?

afaik Enigmail will try to read from keychain first so try importing it
to your keychain. Look at this page:

Did you generate the keys on this system? If not then how did you
import it to this system?

I forgot to mention I was generating them in the Disroot web interface.

I would try redoing everything:

  • goto https://mail.disroot.org
  • under settings click on OpenPGP and fill out your details
  • you’ll see two keys that were added to rainloop’s keyring, click on
    private key (one with lock icon)
  • copy the private key and save it in a file called private.asc (edit
    with any text editor)

NOTE: You have to keep this key safe!

Now try importing this with enigmail. I would recommend generating your
keys locally, never ever generate it in your browser. To practice pgp
you can make a thread under open talks on this forum or visit
