I upgrade to to Sierra because was hanging. I’m not clear exactly when this started, but it might have been when Facebook sent me an encrypted message, which GPG Mail couldn’t decode, and had lots of issues displaying anything. (Thunderbird also could not display it).

Disabling GPGMail seems to have resolved the mail loading issues.

an error or time out when processing a bad or unexpected encrypted attachment.

    Hey David,

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

    Could you please download and install our latest GPG Suite nightly build and see if the problem persists. That page also has sig and SHA256 to verify the download.

    We had another user reporting issues with encrypted mails from facebook showing as unparsed HTML.

    All the best,

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