    Hi Jean,

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

    As described in our Getting Started Tutorial the requirement to create an encrypted email is that you have the public key of the recipient in GPG Keychain. Otherwise you are only able to sign mails and the recipient can read signed mails no matter if they use OpenPGP or not.

    Let me know if this answers your question.

    All the best,

    PS: To benefit from the latest security fixes from apple, you may want to check for pending macOS updates in the MacAppStore. General info about Apple security releases and security relevant fixes for macOS 10.12.6.
