"Beta expired" though I am using the latest nightly build

I'm getting this error when I launch mail:

"You can no longer use this version of GPGMail. Please visit https://gpgtools.org to download the newest version"

I have installed the latest nightly (GPG Suite-1239n.dmg)

How do I get GPGMail running again?

    Close all applications and Deamons

    Download this install package:

    Install manually

    Start the applications and it works fine now

    Thanks for the tip -- but does this mean downgrading to an earlier release? Until a very recent nightly build (from about a week ago) GPG was crashing Mail several times per day. I don't want to revert to a version that's old...

    Hi all,

    quick clarification on this: We had a few nightly builds slip through which did not have the updated GPGMail.

    Could you please install GPG Suite 1240n from https://releases.gpgtools.org/nightlies/ and see if that works?

    All the best,

    Downloaded and installed from the nightlies link in above post. When creating new message, signature is functional, but encryption button is grayed out. Was working fine 2 days ago. Yosemite 10.10.2, Mail v8.2.

    forumsgc, did you download and install 1240n?

    Could you double check you have a sec pub key in GPG Keychain for your own mail address. If that's the case, what happens if you send a test mail to yourself?

    I downloaded and installed 1240n. GPG Keychain showing Version 1.2b5 (81b842a) (1034n). Is this correct?

    GPG Keychain is displaying my sec/pub key, and indicates validity is good. Email message to myself is signed and encrypted, but I am unable to encrypt messages to others. Should I not be able to send an encrypted message to any other email address, even if the intended recipient does not yet have my public key?

    Hi, then everything works as expected. Please see our Getting Started Tutorial to learn more about the setup.

    If you want to encrypt a message, you need the public key of the recipient.

    Thank you very much for the reply. I installed the 1240n build and mail no longer complains when I open it, and it appears work fine.
