Which of our tools is giving you problems? I don't know which tool is responsible for that.

Attach a screenshot of the version info for all installed components (how to: I deinstalled it so I can't send you a screenshot. But the download was from 08.01.2019.

Describe your problem. Add as much detail as possible. After installing the suite on (Mac). I can't open the Mail Application on my Mac. even after uninstalling the problem remains.
The Apple Support couldn't help. I made a new user and the mail application works there.

What did you expect instead I expected, that Mail opens And I see changes because of the plugin.

Are you using any other plugins? I don't have other plugins.

    Hi Noah,

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

    we are very sorry for your bad experience with GPG Suite.

    Unfortunately this happens due to a bug in macOS Mail on Mojave. We have filed the bug with Apple as rdar://45552251 but it is unclear how long it will take them to resolve the issue.

    Following are the steps that should fix this problem:

    • Close
    • Open Terminal and run the following command:

    sudo rm -rf ~/Library/Containers/

    • Open

    We recommend to use their feedback form to inform Apple about this problem and ask them kindly to consider investing the time to fix this bug. It may help to add the rdar number, so they know which issue you are referring to.

    Please let us know if that worked.

    Best regards,
