    Hi angelicb555,

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

    Can you please give exact steps of how the encrypted message was created? Did you genereate it? Looks like it may be coming from some web service, looking at your screenshot? If so, which service is this? Also how did the service create the message. Did you upload a public key? If yes, which fingerprint does the public key have?

    Could you please send a debug log from your affected machine: Open System Preferences > GPG Suite > Send Report. Check the box to "attach debug log". Since you already described your issue in this discussion, you don't need to add a lot of detail, but please do add the link to your existing discussion, so I can then merge your debug info with this existing discussion.

    All the best,
