I have downloaded the GPG team key from a public key server, and set it’s owner trust to full (after checking). Then I downloaded the latest GPG Suite and it’s signature. Trying to verify the signature I receive the message “undefined trust”.

I expected to see “signature verified”

    Hallo AJ,

    der Owner-Trust ist dafür da um festzulegen wie sehr du darauf vertraust, dass Beglaubigungen dieses Schlüssels korrekt sind.
    Um Signaturen die von unserem Schlüssel (85E3 8F69 046B 44C1 EC9F B07B 76D7 8F05 00D0 26C4) erstellt wurden das Vertrauen anzusprechen mach bitte folgendes:

    1. Unseren Schlüssel im GPG Keychain auswählen.
    2. In der Menüleiste "Schlüssel" -> "Beglaubigen …"
    3. Du brauchst die Signatur nicht zu veröffentlichen.

    Nachdem du den Schlüssel Beglaubigt hast, sollten all unsere Signaturen korrekt verifizieren.

    Grüße, Mento

    Please note that 2018.4 no longer support macOS 10.11. In case you are not planning to update to a newer macOS release, that's great. Otherwise, please do install 2018.3:

    You can then update to 2018.4 with a custom install and deselected GPG Mail:
