Encrypted Mail need very long time to load

Hello ,

I am using OSX 10.7.3 and GPGMail 2.0a19 and Mail Version 5.2

The issue is now, that if I click an encrypted Email within the Mail Program, Mail says only "Load ..."
Sometimes it takes "only" 5 minutes to open the Email correctly but sometimes it doesn't open. I cannot quit Mail than if it still "loads", only with the task manager I can kill Mail. If I open it again, also not encrypted Emails need sometimes very long to open.

Mail is configured with IMAP Google and I already reorganized Mail index and did the standard Mac cleaning procedures.

But this issues occurres only, when GPGMail PlugIn is installed.

Thank you in advance for your help.

    Hi Chris,

    Thank you for your feedback. Could you update GPGMail to the latest version and check again? (Mail > Preferences > GPGMail > Check Now or via http://gpgtools.org or via http://nightly.gpgtools.org)

    Best regards, Alex

    Hey Pantermuc,

    I'm not sure what the problem is, but I'd suggest two things:

    1) run Onyx and repair your disk permissions
    2) download the GPGTools Installer from the above nightly page and make sure to select MacGPG2. Before you re-install, I'd run the uninstaller first that comes with the dmg-file.

    Does that help?
