    Hi Ean,

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

    It's very odd that our uninstaller would not uninstall GPG Mail.

    Can you send us another screenshot of a draft showing the entire draft msg please.

    Steve et al,

    Please see the attached screen shot which shows the encrypt and sign buttons after uninstall and reboot.

    Thanks, Ean

    Thanks, the uninstaller actually worked just fine. What you are seeing is not GPG Suite related. You seem to be using an S/MIME cert on your mac and those buttons are the default Apple buttons to utilize S/MIME.

    Let me know if this answers your question.
