GPGMail: Invalid Signatures when correct

Hello, I am running the beta of GPGMail on Sierra. Since installing, every sent email which I have signed shows as having an invalid signature in So, I will compose an email and have it marked as signed using the GPGMail plugin. This can be from any of the 3 different accounts/keys that I use. It asks for my password on my keys, which I provide, and it sends the mail. After I have sent the email, if I go to my sent or all mail folders a blue header appears above the mail I sent stating “ATTENTION: The signature of this message is invalid!” Considering I just sent the message myself, I would not expect this.

I expect for signed mail that I sent to show as having a valid signature when I look at it later in the sent or all mail folders.

    Hey Patrick,

    welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite.

    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,
