I think I have setup my Thunderbird email client to receive PGP encrypted email, but is it supposed to receive emails?

I received a PGP encrypted email on a marketplace. The problem is that its encrypted and its impossible to read it without decrypting it.

Was I supposed to get that mail in my Thunderbird inbox or do I use a different technique with what I were emailed on the market?

Thunderbird doesn't, by itself, accommodate PGP encrypted mail.

Are you using Enigmail, or something else?    Also, what platform? (Windows, Mac, Linux)

I received a PGP encrypted email on a marketplace. The problem is that its encrypted and its impossible to read it without decrypting it.

With EnigMail you  select OpenPGP then Decrypt.

This is assuming the sender had your public key and encrypted the message with PGP so that only you can decrypt it.

Here's a guide:

Are you using GPG4Win? If so it came with a little program called GPA. Should be in the GPG4Win directory on your Start/All Programs menu.

Open that and there is a "Clipboard" button on the top right. Click that, paste in the encrypted text, and it should be able to handle it.

If that doesn't work just cut and paste the encrypted text into an email you send to yourself, and if you have your email client set up properly it should decrypt.

I'm using Thunderbird and Kleopatra/GPG4Win, so this advice goes with that setup, which I figure you might be using since you mentioned Thunderbird.
