I'm about to ask the Verisign people if they have published the code as
they announced in the email. I myself had not had the time to hunt the
Thunderbird integration down and test it, but it is on my todo list.

The SMIMEA and OPENPGPKEY documents are still in "draft", I'll expect
the Thunderbird integration "experimental" and not for "production use"
(but early adopter testing is welcome).

I'll use enigmail for Thunderbird (on MacOS X and on Linux), it works
well for me. However it currently does not support the DANE drafts, just
"old-style" PGP web-of-trust.

I know some people using GPG on Windows via GPG4WIN ->

No, but there is a milter for Postfix and Sendmail that can auto-encrypt
all mail that has a PGP/GPG key published in DNS -->

It requires a local mail-server, either in the local network or the "old
Unix style" way on every machine.

Not my area of expertise, sorry.

Best regards
