Trying to send mail and I’ve been recently getting popups that say cannot send, invalid certifcate. I try to authenticate with the password, but it just keeps poping up. Is there some new reports of authentication issues? As well, I cannot disable all prefernce settings in GPG mail and have things simply go out. I’m not interested in signing, and or encypting everything.

I expected things to continue as they have in the past?

    Hi Nicholas,

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

    Can you please attach a screenshot of the error message you are seeing? Are you using OpenPGP only or do you also have an S/MIME cert?

    Can you elaborate on not being able to adjust the defaults for > Preferences > GPGMail: Are you seeing an error when changing the defaults?
