I am using the betas since the beginning with Yosemite (10.10.1 currently) and after a couple of restarts of I always get the "Beta expired" dialogue. I am using 2.5b4, build 802b of GPGMail now. Sometimes it helps restarting, it sometimes loads the Extension then. But most of the time it stays inactive. Is there any way to debug this and see why GPGMail thinks it is expired?

    Hi Marcus,

    thanks for the report. Did you install from our homepage or via automatic updates?

    Could you try to reinstall from our homepage and see if that changes anything?

    All the best,

    Hi Steve,

    thanks for the very fast response. I did install it from the homepage because I couldn't get the old extension to work anymore. Currently it is working and stable between restarts of But after the first start of after installing Beta 4 it was still prompting the expired beta.

    Kind regards,

    Ok, good to know.

    There is a known issue when you put your mac to sleep that you might see a "no pinentry" error. In that case a machine restart will serve as a workaround.

    I'm closing this discussion. If you need further assistance or have questions you can re-open this discussion here or open a new one any time.

    Best, steve
