GPGMail 2.5b5 (Build: 891b)
Mail 8.2 (2070.6)

I have public/private key pairs for both my email address and a group. In some cases I need to send email coming from my email address, but I need said email to be signed with the group key.

Currently I do this by manually armor-signing a text file and then cut & pasting into the Mail app, but it would be cleaner if I could ctrl-click somewhere to choose a different key to sign with.

What did you expect instead

Since this is likely a seldom used feature, I would be ok with either a keyboard shortcut, optional dropdown or ctrl-click on the "Sign this email" toggle that would then allow me to select among my available private keys.

This is not an error report but more of a feature request (or a pointer to the part I missed in the documentation that explains how to do this).

    Hi Luis,

    if you have more than a single key for the same mail account, when composing a new mail there should be a dropdown selection with your key ID in the "From:" field.

    Do you not have this dropdown selection?
