OK, I just went through the process again. I brought jessie completely up to
date, including the thunderbird and enigmail apps, then tried to run thunderbird.

At that point, enigmail pops up a box that says that it requires gnupg 2.0.7
or newer (which is obviously later than the 1.4.18 offered by the official
repository). See image at:

I then downgraded using the same sequence as before, which is how I am able to
send this e-mail.
