I have thunderbird with Enigma/OpenPGP(Running Enigmail version 0.95.1 (20070607)) installed and set to sign and encrypt email messages on send.

My email messages seem to send OK, but I have noticed the following error is logged after each message is sent. I usually send to multiple recipients, if it matters. Here is the error:

Error: gAccountManager has no properties
Source File: chrome://messenger/content/messengercompose/MsgComposeCommands.js
Line: 2384

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install and configure OpenGPG with a valid keypair and set to encrypt/sing messages on send

2. Compose and send an email message to multiple recipients
3. Observe the Error Console messages
Actual Results:  
The mail does send successfully, but the error message is still logged each time.

Expected Results:  
Not sure what the nature of this error is.

I have a signature automatically attached to composed messages.

Our mail server connection is SMTP with TLS enabled for authentication, and I have permanent accepted a self-signed certificate from the SMTP server in Thunderbird.

AFAIK, we don't support third party extensions...
Have you brought this up with the enigmail devs?  Can you reproduce without the extension?  (I'm guessing that wouldn't really help here because it sounds like it's a feature that wouldn't exist without the extension although I suppose you could try S/MIME)
Generally problems with extensions should be addressed by the devs/support for that extension (in this case http://enigmail.mozdev.org/forum.html ) or general addons support venue like #addons @ irc.mozilla.org.  In this case however, the extension is only used with MailNews and is very popular so I would try #thunderbird as well.

nit: btw, TLS is not enabled for "authentication".  It's enabled for the entire connection.  (the only cleartext should be TLS handshake components at the beginning whatever those may be)  Depending on what you meant by authentication, it is either authenticating the server with your locally trusted copy of the cert or authenticating you with credentials (prolly user/pass)  Either way the entire session including all traffic (for authentication or otherwise) should use TLS.

I wasn't sure if the presence of OpenPGP mattered or was the real source of the error. I just tried sending a test email on another host with the same version of Thunderbird installed, but without OpenPGP / Enigmail installed, and I didn't see the error. I would also note that the other host isn't using TLS for sending via SMTP.

I understand your nit with TLS. I think we use user and password authentication, but I ended up accepting the certificate because it was annoying me (pops up each time due to not being signed by a trusted authority). It's an internal mail server.
