GPGMail plugin has been disabled on Apple Mail 11.0 upon startup.

How to reproduce the issue:
Just start Apple Mail and the plugin will be disabled.

It is expected to work just like its macOS predecessor version, macOS Sierra being the closest version.

    Hi Ru,

    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,

    Hi Ru,

    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.
