GPGMail functioned with Apple Mail under MacOS Sierra.

Following the upgrade to MacOS High Sierra, Apple Mail now disables the GPGMail plugin due to incompatibility. This renders it unusable.

That it may have worked with Apple Mail v11.2 (High Sierra).

    Hi Mark,

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

    Please check for updates. GPG Suite 2018.1 is available and should bring you back to working state. Let me know if that did the trick.

    Hello Steve,

    Thank you very much for replying. I have applied the 2018.1 update, and GPG Suite now appears to be correctly working with Apple Mail.

    Thank you again, and sorry for raising what I now see to be a duplicate bug report.

    Best wishes,

    No worries. Glad things are working again for you.

    Could you open System Preferences > GPG Suite Preferences and check if you have the update check disabled? The version you had running was quite outdated and by default you should have been receiving some update info.

    Thank you Steve. I can confirm that automatic checking for updates was/is enabled, but that I had not realised I needed to update following my upgrade to MacOS High Sierra (because it was still alright under plain Sierra)!

    Best wishes,
