    Hi Dimitris,

    the first beta of macOS 10.13 High Sierra has been released by Apple in early June. GPGMail will be disabled upon upgrade. We're already looking into the internal changes.

    This KB-article has details as to why GPGMail becomes disabled after major macOS updates.

    For any productive work and if you rely on using GPGMail, you should refrain from updating to the pre-release version of macOS. At this time we cannot say, when a first test version for macOS 10.13 High Sierra will be available.

    All the best,

    No problem, I'm already doing manual encryption/decryption using the Services menu.

    But GPGMail is a nice convenience :)

    Sure is. It will be still some time until the first 10.13 beta will be release though.

    Btw, 10.13 Public Beta is already released for a while now.

    Is there anything special to get GPGMail to register as installed on High Sierra?
    I tried the beta to see if GPG was working (figured it would not be, but thought it was worth a shot) and it does not show as installed.
    The installer should be the same as with Sierra, right?

    Hi Dimitris et all,

    we have great news to share with you:
    GPG Suite 2017.1 is available

    It includes the stable version of GPGMail for macOS Sierra and a first beta for macOS High Sierra. So if you install this update and plan to upgrade today, GPGMail will just continue working.

    Head over to our homepage for the full announcement and download:

    We really hope you enjoy the new release.
