    Hi dhanesh.vis,

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

    We tested the default and it worked as expected in our test.

    Can you please open terminal and paste the output of the following command:

    defaults read org.gpgtools.gpgmail DefaultSecurityMethod -int

    Can you please restart and see if then S/MIME is the default method?
