Ok I had a very simple solution to that. When sending mails to myself they were automatically encrypted. When I wanted to open them I had the same error. Sidenote: They were automatically encrypted as my mailadress was known to my mail client and assigned a key. Solution: Uncheck something like "never ask for passphrase" in the enigmail settings.

Most of the 1,7 GB will be emails and their corresponding attachments. Since you uninstalled it, one may assume you do not need the emails/passwords, attachments etc. anymore. If that is the case, yes, it is save to remove. However Be aware that emails you have in a POP account will possibly be lost. They will not be on the server any more unless you ...

Also to free up some additional space you can try to run this command: sudo apt-get autoremove --purge && sudo apt-get autoclean It will remove all the dependencies not needed anymore along with their cached .deb packages that are usually kept in order to be able to reinstall them without having to redownload them; if you feel like you don't need ...

Yes. If you have uninstalled it you can remove the preferences file. All archived mail will be removed. As will all emails if you had a pop account. I assume that is what you want.
