I have the GPGTools installed for Sierra. I am able to encrypt emails successfully, but when I receive an encrypted email, it just shows up with two attachments. I am able to decrypt the message from the command line, but I can not see the decrypted message in Mail.


I’d expect to see the decrypted email message in Mail when I receive it

    Hi Alan,

    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.

    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.

    Hey Steve,

    I installed the nightly version 2.7 (528f510), and I don't see the issue anymore. I'm guessing this was a known issue? In any case, thanks for the help!

    Hi Alan,

    indeed known and fixed. The fix will be included in the next beta release. The fault here lies with an MS exchange server manipulated, for whatever reason there may be, the sent mails. The fix allows GPGMail to be a bit more tolerant towards that.

    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
