Which of our tools is giving you problems?

I have installed GPGTools on my iMac and set up a default key, which I uploaded to the server. I then installed GPGTools on my MacBook and downloaded the key from the server via the look up key. However I can not use that as my default key so I can use it to send an encrypted file to anyone. I have checked the Knowledge Base but I can not find a similar request.

Paste version info of your installed software: (how to: http://support.gpgtools.org/kb/faq/where-can-i-find-version-info-of...)

Version 1.2b6 (1057b)

Describe your problem. Add as much detail as possible.

    Hi JRErickson,

    welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite.

    Sorry, this one slipped through the cracks. Are you still seeing this issue?

    All the best,
