Draft's windows not (sometimes) closed after sending email

I'm using the Alpha of GPGTools for El Capitan and I've seen a weird behavior.

When sending emails, sometimes, after having clicked on sent (when mails are correctly sent), there is a still a window of the last draft of the mail opened in my Mail from Apple. Is it related to GPG ?

Except that, everything seems fine! Great job!

Thanks for your hints.

    Hi Yann,

    please open Mail.app > Preferences > GPGMail and check for updates. GPGMail 2.6b2 has been released yesterday and you should see that update.

    You may consider enabling the automatic update check to ensure you see updates. If you have the interval (in GPGPreferences) set to weekly you should have seen the update probably in the coming days.

    Let me know if this worked and if with 2.6b2 the issue is solved.

    Mail is telling me that the 2.6a1 is the current newest version available ?


    Kind regards,

    Please open System Preferences > GPGPreferences and there the "Updates" tab.

    If GPGMail is on the nightly channel, please switch to pre-release and retry. If that also does not help, restart your mac and retry

    Hello Steve,

    Thanks for your reply.
    Indeed, the channel was not the right one.

    I'm now on the 2.6b2 and will tell you if it works better!
