Nightly + Outlook 15.36.1 not working?

Version info is below.

I have an up-to-date stable Mac (non-beta) and started with the stable GPG Suite. I successfully imported my GPG key and secret from my Windows desktop and was able to successfully send a signed email from Apple mail. So I know it's working.

I then enabled GPG Services as I'm aware full integration with Outlook is not available at this time.

I only need to sign emails. Preferably with the signature inline in the email (not as an attachment or part of a header, if possible).

I opened a new draft, typed some text, and selected all the text. Once done, I right clicked and went to services and found the "Sign Selection" option. I select this and I am prompted for my password but nothing is added to the email. In fact, outlook seems to freeze.

I upgraded to the beta with the same result. I then upgraded to nightly which still has same result.

Two questions:

1) How can I get email signing to work (to any capacity) with Outlook and GPGServices?

2) Is there a way to just go to services and "Sign email" instead of having to select all the text first? Some screenshots I see online show a "Sign" option in addition to the "Sign Selected" option I just don't see it.

Version Info

macOS 10.12.6
GPG Suite 2017.1 (1939n)
GPGServices 1.11 (954n)

    Hi jdsmith1012,

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

    We have a ticket for this problem. I connected this discussion with the existing ticket. That means, should this discussion get closed, it will be re-opened as soon as the ticket is closed. That way you'll stay in the loop and get notified as soon as we have news. Feel free to open a new discussions should you run into further problems or need assistance.

    As a workaround you can formulate your mail in Outlook, copy the text to, sign / encrypt there and then copy the signed / encrypted messages back to Outlook.

    All the best,
