My default mail application on Mac OS (10.12.5) is Mozilla Thunderbird.

Upon following the prescribed procedure for emailing my public key from GPG Keychain, an outgoing Thunderbird email message is generated, but there is no attachment.

I was expecting the email message to include my public key as an attachment.
