Procedure to verify the key:

gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys DB1187B9DD5F693B
gpg --fingerprint DB1187B9DD5F693B

Then you compare it with the official fingerprint on the Enigmail website:
https://www.enigmail.net/documentation/signature.php
(Additional check: FB54 A4DA C00C 09C4 0C1B 6A40 9142 6DC1 4E49 53D8)

If it matches, you lsign the key. You need to generate a key first if you don't have one:

(Optional) Generate key:
gpg --gen-key

lsign key:
gpg --lsign-key DB1187B9DD5F693B

You will need to do this only once (or until the signing key changes).

After that you can build and install the package with makepkg.

The issue was caused by using an AUR helper, which is unable to handle split packages, and was resolved by doing things manually.

warning: cannot resolve "icedove>=38", a dependency of "icedove-enigmail-bin"
:: The following package cannot be upgraded due to unresolvable dependencies:
icedove-enigmail-bin

Package is for both icedove and thunderbird now.

Previously could use it for just thunderbird. I have firefox installed so I cannot use this.

Thanks for fixing the PKGBUILD!

Just another note for anyone who ran into this issue earlier:

While running pacaur -Syu today the package still failed, because the broken versions of enigmail-1.9.6.1-sm+tb.xpi{.asc,} (only containing the html code of the download page) still resided in ~/.cache/pacaur/thunderbird-enigmail-bin and were not re-downloaded automatically. So one has to remove those files in order to get back to a state where everything works as it is supposed to...

Thanks for figuring this out.

Fixed.

The domain of the source url has changed to http://enigmail.net. This took me some time to find out as the old url silently redirects to the new download page, so both downloaded files contain html code. Then the gpg signature check failed without any further information...

Transferred ownership to respiranto, because he does all the work anyways the last few releases :)

Works for me. Key importing and verifying (gpg lsign) is something you have to do. As stated in the comment just before yours.
