I made the mistake of upgrading to Mountain Lion before checking to see that GPGMail plugin no longer works. Are there any instructions I can follow to do encrypting/decrypting in a non-integrated way for now? Like in terminal maybe? Or with GPGServices perhaps?

Much thanks. And I really appreciate your work on this stuff guys and gals!

    Hey Wesley, yes you can use the GPGServices for now. For that

    • drag the encrypted.asc file to your desktop
    • open with e.g. TextEdit
    • select all
    • right click > services > OpenPGP > decrypt selection

    Or you could setup Thunderbird with the Enigmail plug-in for the time being to encrypt your important mails.

    Hope this helps,

    Does the Service Encrypt/Decrypt in the Context Menu work in Mail?

    Hey Roland,

    not quite yet. Encrypt should work already, not so decrypting. For decryption you currently still have to drag encrypted.asc file to your desktop and then open that with TextEdit to decrypt then.

    The according ticket for this is: http://gpgtools.lighthouseapp.com/projects/67607/tickets/73-decrypt...

    Pls follow the ticket if you want to receive notifications when this gets worked on.

    All the best, steve
