The buttons for using PGP in Mail are not available in the new email composer. I have tried downloading the newest nightly build and the issue persists.

I expected the “encrypt” and “Sign” buttons on new mail

    I installed the nightly build as mentioned in that thread. The tools are still not available in Mail.

    Hi Stephen,

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

    Could you update macOS to 10.13.5 to make sure you have all the latest security fixes from Apple, then re-install the latest nightly and let me know if then GPGMail shows up in > Preferences.

    Has the setup been working prior or is this a new setup?

    After updating MacOS and re-installing the GPG Suite, Mail now shows the OpenPGP tools in the toolbar.
    Thanks for solving this issue!
