GPGMail: multitudes of drafts for each email

I have OS X 10.11.5 & GPGMail 2.6.1 build 1151
I have a POP3 gmail account.

I’ve checked the “Encrypt drafts” box and now as I compose an email I get a new encrypted draft with every new word. Suddenly a single email is producing 70-80 draft emails that are all encrypted and all want a password.

1 draft that goes away at the time I actually send the email.

Mac OS X        10.11.5             (15F34)
Libmacgpg       0.7         769 
GPGMail         2.6.1       1151
GPG Keychain    1.3.1       1223
GPGServices     1.11        907 
MacGPG2         2.0.30      875 
GPGPreferences  2.0         887 
Pinentry        0.9.7       2

    Hey RG,

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

    We have a ticket for this problem. I connected this discussion with the existing ticket. That means, should this discussion get closed, it will be re-opened as soon as the ticket is closed. That way you'll stay in the loop and get notified as soon as we have news. Feel free to open a new discussions should you run into further problems or need assistance.

    Does the problem persist if you disable "Store drafts in server" under > Preferences > Accounts > Mailbox behaviors?

    And then, does the problem persist, when disabling GPGMail?

    could you temporarily disable GPGMail:

    • shut down
    • open finder
    • navigate to /Library/Mail/Bundles or ~/Library/Mail/Bundles and copy GPGMail.mailbundle to your desktop
    • now delete GPGMail.mailbundle from the original folder

    Restart mail and check in > Preferences if you still see GPGMail. It should be gone.

    To re-enable mail, close and move the bundle file back to the Bundles folder.

    All the best,

    The bug where created multiple drafts has been fixed by Apple in macOS 10.13. If you are still affected by this issue, consider updating to macOS 10.13 High Sierra.
