GPGMail: Problem decrypting PGP Inline

I just upgraded to the latest beta release for High Sierra, and now certain PGP Inline messages are no longer being decrypted. The ones I’ve noticed were all encrypted with gpg4o, at least some of which were sent using v5.3.8.9035 of gpg4o. Before the update, these messages decrypted properly (and I can decrypt them manually or with another mail client, like MailMate).

I expected the PGP Inline messages to decrypt properly.

    Hi Alex,

    the changes for GPGMail for the 2018.1 release have not been that big. Could you double check you are still able to decrypt the messages from gpg4o after installing GPG Suite 2017.3?

    You may then update again to 2018.1.

    Can you share one of those problematic messages with us? Please export the message in question, so that we can have a closer look. To export, simply select the message in and press CMD + SHIFT + S, select "Raw Message Source" as type and save it.

    Attach the resulting .eml file to this discussion by visiting it in your browser (email reply should work but sometimes attachments do not arrive).

    PS: To benefit from the latest security fixes from apple, you may want to check for pending macOS updates in the MacAppStore. General info about Apple security releases including the latest macOS release.
