    Hi Karsten,

    unfortunately we don't have any os x 10.5 machines available for testing, so I'm not entirely sure what the problem is.

    GPG Keychain Access should be installed in /Applications unless your installation failed.

    Could you please recheck if you find it there?

    Thanks for your answer, but it's not installed in Applications.
    Now I'm installing Snow Leopard, then we will see.

    Many Thanks.

    If you don't have any good reason not to, consider going straight to Lion.
    Our tools currently work best on it.

    No further user feedback. Closing.

    @Karsten: Should your problem persist, feel free to re-open this discussion any time. Were you able to install Lion? I heard Mountain Lion is coming soon, but GPGMail is not yet ready for 10.8 so if you need mail security, 10.7 is the way to go currently.

    All the best,

    Please consider a donation. We do all this in our spare time.
