None of the following secret keys could be found in your keychain (67783ACE). The secret key is needed to decrypt this message.
Problem: I see 67783ACE in my subkey menu with a 2022 expiration date, so I don’t understand why I can’t decrypt…

should decrypt

    Hi Brian,

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

    This indeed seems to be an odd case. Please note that GPG Suite required macOS 10.12 or later.

    The old version you are running is no longer support.

    Do you have any chance to update your mac to a newer OS?

    Could you check if your key has nonetheless expired? Check the key tab as well as the subkey tab.

    All the best,
