Hi All.

Just installed GPGtools on a clean Catalina install. wasn't planning on using the mail plug-in since not avail. yet.
but after the installation I noticed that there is no plug-ins button in the mail app. preferences. Honestly didn't notice if it was there before installing GPG but wondering if something broke after the install?
Now. the plugin not working after a new release is nothing new. but on top of that. I hope it didn't break something.
