I followed these instructions for a secure email submission.
Worked very well and I just purchased a support license.

Now I want to use encrypted email on a different computer.
Also to use multiple email addresses with one setup.

Could you please tell the steps to do that?

    Hi Constantine,

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

    This KB-article explains how to add more than one email address to an existing key. The email addresses in a key are called userIDs and you can add as many as you want. You can of course also create an additional key for the other email address.

    Important: Note that all email addresses you add to a single key can be connected to one identity. Depending on your use-case this might be wanted or should be avoided. Please consider that first and then proceed.

    This KB-article explains how to transfer keys from one mac to a second mac if you want to use the same keys on more than a single machine.

    Let me know if you have more questions or need further assistance after going through that KB.

    All the best,
