Preferences are set only to sign mails by default, not encrypt.

when sending an email , which is only an attachment & signature. message is received as encrypted.

message should have been rec’d with two attachments .asc (signed) and .jpg (file attachment)

    Hi James,

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

    Are you able to reproduce the problem you are describing? You can simply test by sending yourself a test mail with identical structure. If the issue is reproducible, could you send a message with the structure you are describing our way: visit and scroll to the very bottom. On the left click "Contact".

    All the best,

    PS: To benefit from the latest security fixes from apple, you may want to check for pending macOS updates in the MacAppStore. General info about Apple security releases and security relevant fixes for macOS 10.12.5.
