I’m using macOS Sierra, GPG 2017.1b2, and have the following issue.

When composing a message, it asks for my passphrase when sending an email in When entering a wrong password, it asks again for the proper password. After supplying the correct password, the mail is send, but the compose window remains open, misleading the user the email has not been sent

After successfully entering the password the second time, send email and close compose window
