GPGMail: Message meant to be sent as plain text was encrypted once being queued in Mail outbox

When I had the plug-in (version 2.6b2, build1105b) set to encrypt drafts by default in OS X Mail for El Capitan (version 9.2), I composed a message while offline to a correspondent who doesn't use encryption. When I clicked to send it, Mail placed the message in the outbox but the plug-in did not decrypt it then or when Mail finally sent it after I got back online, resulting in an encrypted message and a confused recipient.

    Hi Rob,

    the issue where drafts where unintentionally encrypted twice has been fixed. If you want to test the fix, please download our latest nightly GPG Suite. That page also has sig and SHA1 to verify the download.

    Should the problem persist, please re-open this discussion and let us know. For more questions that are not related to this specific problem, you are welcome to create a new discussion any time.

    Best, steve

    Disclaimer: This is a development version which has not been thoroughly tested yet, so bugs or crashes are to be expected. Thanks for helping us test this fix.
