After uploading the latest GPG suite update, my Apple Mail would not work.
It was crashing every time I tried to compose or send an email.
I have therefore had to uninstall the Mail part of the suite.

Mail to work and not continually crash.

    Could you please download and install our latest hotfix GPG Suite and see if that solves your problem.

    All the best,

    Do you remember if you had any drafts in your drafts folder when this happened?

    Hi Will,

    we are actively looking into this problem but so far, we are unable to reproduce this specific problem on our macs, which makes debugging and fixing this problem somewhat difficult.

    Would you be willing to have a remote debugging session?

    You would have to temporarily disable SIP System Integrity Protection (SIP) and install Xcode on your mac.

    1. Temporarily disable SIP

      1. Click the  menu.
      2. Select Restart...
      3. Hold down command-R to boot into the Recovery System.
      4. Click the Utilities menu and select Terminal.
      5. Type csrutil disable and press return.
      6. Close the Terminal app.
      7. Click the  menu and select Restart.... Once debugging is finished, please re-enable SIP. Repeat these steps, changing csrutil disable to csrutil enable instead.
    2. Install Xcode
      Xcode is available via the Mac App Store:

    Looking forward to your feedback.

    All the best,
