Lion mail not working

I have installed the latest lion software
I have the latest gig tools installed
I updated the gig mail program and it installed one update

When I click on mac mail I don't see any gpg options at all. I have uninstalled and installed about 12 times.
You can see a screenshot of my new mail program. You can see there are no gpg options

If I open terminal and type gpg it responds go ahead and type your message
If I go into mail preferences, there is a gpg mail tab and it has checked enable open pgpg/mmie. I updated the mail program from this screen

So despite having the latest software for both lion and GPG , my mail looks just like my old mail program with no options or checkboxes of any kind for encryption.

I have a program called gpg keychain access to appears to be working. It is the most updated version Screenshot below

Is there anyone else that has Lion that has this working?

Does anyone have any suggestions at all?

I had sent a similar ticket in about 2 weeks ago but haven't heard anything.

    Hi Ken,

    first off, sorry we didn't answer you first request. This must have been a mistake, since usually every request is answered within a few days.

    Here's the link to version a24 -
    Could you please remove the bundle under ~/Library/Mail/Bundles and move the attached mailbundle to that directory.

    After that, please restart and open Mail -> Preferences -> GPGMail to verify that version a24 shows up.

    If you open you should find a line saying " GPGMail: Enabled ..." or " GPGMail: Disabled ..."

    Could you please report back what you see?

    @Ken, was your problem ever resolved? Since we never heard back from you I assume so and am closing this discussion.

    If your problem persists and you still need help, feel free to re-open this discussion anytime.

    All the best, steve
