I am using Thunderbird together with GPG keychain and the Enigmail plugin. This works fine with Thunderbird. But I also want to use the Macbook Mail program. My question is if I install the GPG Suite will that conflict or cause problems with my Thunderbird setup?

    Hi Stephen,

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

    Installing GPG Suite should not affect your Enigmail / Thunderbird setup.

    Feel free to let us know how that went. Note that you will have to install GPG Suite 2017.1beta (and not the 2016.10 stable release) if you are on macOS 10.12.

    All the best,
