For some reason GPG is no longer encrypting my emails. When I write an email I no longer have the option to encrypt it.

GPG is installed on my Mac and it is up to date. I am using Apple Mail on a MacBook Air (HighSierra 10.13.6).

Could you kindly help me to fix this issue?

Thank you and kind regards,

The click option where one can select if the email should be sent encrypted or not.

    Hi Eduard,

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

    With GPG Suite 2018.4 we introduced GPG Mail Support Plan. More info about that change can be found here:

    GPG Mail beta which was part of GPG Suite 2018.3 has since expired.

    After updating to the latest GPG Suite from our website you should be back to working state.
