Trying to send an email - signed - might and often causes IMAP account to freeze up, no dialogue might be displayed to enter passphrase, and mails get caught as drafts, and also causing “recovery” inboxes.

A dialoge as usual. Signing of outbound email.

Additional info
multiple keys and multiple accounts.

    Hi Bjorn,

    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.

    Should the problem persist, could you double check, all your keys and subkeys are unexpired and valid?

    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.
