The mail plugin does not show up at all in Mail version 11.
I’ve reinstalled GPGSuite recently if that comes up as an issue.

To utilize the GPGMail client plugin functionality

    Hi Patrick,

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

    The first beta of macOS 10.13 High Sierra has been released by Apple in early June. GPGMail will be disabled upon upgrade. We're already looking into the internal changes.

    This KB-article has details as to why GPGMail becomes disabled after major macOS updates.

    For any productive work and if you rely on using GPGMail, you should refrain from updating to the pre-release version of macOS. At this time we cannot say, when a first test version for macOS 10.13 High Sierra will be available.

    All the best,

    I apologize, I hadn't noticed all of the other reports on this before I sent it in!

    No problem. This way we can notify you as soon as a first beta is ready :)

    Hi Patrick,

    we have great news to share with you:

    It includes the stable version of GPGMail for macOS Sierra and a first beta for macOS High Sierra. So if you install this update and plan to upgrade today, GPGMail will just continue working.

    Head over to our homepage for the full announcement and download:

    We really hope you enjoy the new release.
