The procedure entry point
?NS_NewPipe@@YAIPAPAVnsIInputStream@@PAPAVnsIOutputStream@@IIHHPAVnsIMemory@@@Z
could not be located in the dynamic link library xpcom.dll

The procedure entry point
??1nsAVLTree@@QAE@XZ could not be located in teh dynamic link library xpcom.dll

Enigmail:
IPCService/ProcessInfo not available

To avoid this alert, either fix the problem or uninstall Enigmail using the
Edit->Preferences->Privacy&Security->Enigmail menu

This alert will not repeat until you upgrade Enigmail

Failed to initialize Enigmail.

Attempted to uninstall Enigmail

"Failed to uninstall EnigMail communicator overlay RDF; not deleting chrome jar

Being a co-maintainer of Enigmail, I suggest this bug should go to the Enigmail
project (http://enigmail.mozdev.org), as the send function of MailNews is
overwritten by Enigmail. I.e. it's entirely the fault of Enigmail that the
behavior is as described, there is nothing wrong with Mozilla.

Marking INVALID as per Patricks suggestion.
(cry out loud if your opinion is different ;)

Repoter, if you can still see this problem with the latest versions of
Mozilla & Enigmail please go to http://enigmail.mozdev.org and file a
bug there.
