    Hi Dian,

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

    Can you send us the error messages and or crash log you are seeing, so we can take a closer look at what could be going wrong.

    Before removing GPGMail, could you please download and install our latest hotfix GPG Suite and see if that solves your problem.

    In case the issue is not resolved with the nightly: you can 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 the Preferences - GPGMail should be gone.

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

    All the best,

    Disclaimer: This is a development version which has not been thoroughly tested yet - bugs or crashes are to be expected. Thanks for helping us test.
