  • Software name and version: GPGMail 1.3.3
  • OS X version: 10.6.8
  • GPGTools Installer date: GPGTools-20120318

What steps will reproduce the problem? Please be as specific as possible.

  1. I received an email with a non-latin (Chinese) email address descriptor in the text
  2. I attempt to reply to that email
  3. GPGMail crashes

However, if I try to forward it to myself I can do so successfully, though the first time I get an invalid signature.

Forwarding and Replying on Lion 10.7.4 + GPGMail 2.0a19 works

    I'd attached the crash log earlier, but I don't see it in the report. I'm reattaching it in case it was not sent.

    Hi TC,

    unfortunately we no longer support the GPGMail plugin for Snow Leopard.
    We're working hard to get a stable version out for Lion and Mountain Lion.
    Once that's completed, we might backport the code to Snow Leopard, but before, we are very sorry but can't help you with issues in GPGMail for Snow Leopard due to lack of resources.

    Hope you understand.

    @luke, you beat me 1 min with your reply ;)

    Hey TC Wan,
    thanks for taking the time to report this problem. And sorry to hear you are having issues.

    The bad news is: We are currently working on GPGMail 2.0, which is 10.7 Lion only. We might do a backport but since not even the final of GPGMail 2.0 is out, that might take some time.

    Currently all I can suggest is to upgrade to 10.7 (which you write does indeed work fine) or wait for the backport.

    We had several issues with non-latin chars and fixed the ones that were reported while we still were working on GPGMail 1.x.

    Sorry I don't have better news for you.

    All the best,
