Hi, I am stuck at sending a test email. When my compose template pops up through my apple mail app it doesn't have the two buttons: star and lock. Can you help? I'm running this on Sierra 10.12.6. Thanks

    Hi Angel,

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

    We currently offer GPG Suite 2016.10 (stable) and GPG Suite 2017.1 (beta). GPGMail for macOS 10.12 Sierra is in beta. To switch to the beta channel:

    1. open GPGPreferences > Settings
    2. in the Update section tick the checkbox to 'Include beta builds'
    3. optionally also enable automatic update checks, to ensure you are notified about new beta releases
    4. press 'Check Now'

    After that GPGMail should be up and running again.

    If you see any trouble using the beta, please let us know.

    All the best,
