    Hi Fernandes,

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

    This KB-article explains how to verify and sign a key. In that process there is also the important step where you verify the public key you have uses the correct fingerprint. Can you double check with the recipient that you indeed have the correct public key?
