Which of our tools is giving you problems? GPG Mail 7.1 (Build 2180)

Attach a screenshot of the version info for all installed components (how to: see in comment below :)

Describe your problem. Add as much detail as possible. When using the OpenPGP option in the top right corner, the blank space of the separator "-- " of the signature (note blank at the end) gets removed. When using S/MIME, it's fine.

What did you expect instead Not removing blanks

Describe steps leading to the problem. Create an E-Mail using a signature with the separator "-- " (text-only) with the Mac Apple Mail App

Are you using any other plugins? nope
