GPGMail: Sender Selection

Tim's Avatar


24 Jan, 2017 04:24 PM

I just installed beta 2 of GPG Tools for macOS Sierra. Whenever I compose an email, the sender is changed from the selected mailbox to the last sender used. The compose window starts with the sender being that of the mailbox selected, but changes immediately after entering a recipient.

I expect the sender to not change.

    Hey Tim,

    this is a bit confusing but this is a classic case of "it's a feature not a bug". Open > Preferences > Compose > Addresses. In the dropdown deselect the automatic account option.

    After understanding what actually does and due to the lack of a proper changelog from Apples side for I actually discovered I like that new default and am still using it.

    The fact that Apple randomly changes such things without offering a detailed changelog is somewhat unprofessional and can lead to big irritations.

    All the best,
