After upgrading to Version 1.5 (1577) Mail started crashing after a few lines of writing a new email.

Mail 11.5 (3445.9.1) on OS X 10.13.6 (17G8030).
Unpaid version of GPG Mail 1.5 (1577), where the test period was expired.

Restart and configuring GPG-mail to not encrypt anything did not help.
Uninstall GPG Mail solved the problem.

I expect that the plugin does not crash Apple Mail
