    Hey Tim,

    thanks for filing all those reports. They are appreciated!

    This is an odd one. We are unable to reproduce this behavior and are able to use search as usual with GPG Suite (GPGMail b1 for 10.12) installed.

    Is this problem reproducible after a restart? If so, could you open, reproduce a search in and see if you find any related erros. Try searching for mail, gpgmail, libmacgpg, gpg, cssm.

    All the best,

    This was entirely my fault: shortly after GPG tools was installed, Spotlight re-indexed a whole lot of things on disk (likely including an archive of thousands of emails). So I turned it off.

    I'm not sure if the re-indexing was related to the GPG tools install, or other software installs.

    I don't think GPG Suite has any influence on mail indexing.

    Perfect. Glad, this is solved for you. I'm closing this discussion. Should you need further assistance or have questions you can re-open this discussion here or open a new one any time.

    Best, steve
