Installed 'First Beta of GPGMail for macOS Sierra (10.12) ' distributed just now with my Mac (10.12.2). Although Mac Mailer notified as below, looks GPG Tools itself is working fine. Thank you very much for your great efforts.

Mail has disabled the following plug-ins:


Contact the makers of these plug-ins for versions that are compatible with Mail 10.2.

    Hey Mats,

    so the beta is not recognized by your system on 10.12.2? Can you post the download link you used to download the beta?

    Or are things working as expected?

    Hi GPG Tool team and Steve,

    First of all, let me say my biggest thanks for your continuous efforts and contributions.
    It doesn't work with Mac Mailer. This below is the download link I received via email.

    After installing the update above, the workaround below works but don't work with Mac Mailer.

    Attached are screen shots of mine. I tested decryption with encrypted mail by Facebook, since I could decrypt mails with GPG Tools before my updating it. Appreciate your suggestion. Thanks a lot.

    Thanks for the feedback about GPGMail beta for macOS Sierra 10.12.

    We think we fixed the problem you are seeing. Could you please install GPG Suite from our nightlies page and see if the problem then persists.

    Please note that old messages showing the incorrect invalid error message will remain broken. So any tests will have to be done with new messages.

    Looking forward to your feedback.

    All the best,

    Hi Steve and Team,

    It worked perfect. No indication message that I observed appeared, and decrypted Mac Mailer messages encrypted decently. Thank you very much for your efforts!

    Please ping me any time when you'd like to have a beta tester outside your team. I'll be happy to contribute to you and your great work!
