Wow, Bubba, you really need to chill out. I fear for your blood pressure. As far as I'm aware everyone knew this was coming, no-one's being extorted as you'll still be able to access encrypted mail, and if you feel that the software is of questionable effectiveness I strongly urge you to move on and seek an alternative solution.
Ah, Graham: Could you please enlighten me and the many others here as to how we can now access GPGMail-encrypted emails without GPGMail on our boxes? I can't seem to figure that one out. Your insight would really be appreciated.
The GPGTools developers are ransoming the use of Apple Mail. The only way to access earlier-encrypted emails with this default program is by capitulating to their demands and paying up. Kinda reeks like extortion to me.

The email are GPG/PGP encrypted - GPGMail “just” makes the process seamless to the user.
Or you could save yourself the effort and support GPGMail for about $30, and benefit from the convenience :)

I have been using GPG along with the mail plugin for several years and I have been happy with the product and the philosophy behind the Open concept.
I have even stayed with the platform when the vulnerabilities of the plugin were exposed showing support for the product and the team.
Unfortunately I cannot effort to pay 23.80 (not monthly and not yearly whichever would be). Specially under the "support" BS. What kind of support could I ever need? I pretty much help myself on troubleshooting as many of us using OPEN platforms.
It is unfortunate... I have uninstalled the plugin and I am keeping the PGP services in the background in case I need to read or write encrypted emails in the future but I am definitely not going to use pgp tools in the future...
