How do I get rid of GPG in my 'mail' application on OSX? Thank you! Henry
Its gone, I put it in the trash and emptied the trash. BUT IT STILL COMES UP ON MY MAC MAIL.
I WANT TO GET RID OF THE WHOLE THING - FROM MAC MAIL. Please!
I've deleted the program, but it still exists in Mac Mail.
How do I exterminate the entire GPGkeychain application?

Download the latest version:
open it and run the Uninstaller.app that you find in there. It deletes all components of the GPG Suite but leaves the keychains intact.

Thank you Thomas U.
Yep, I had issues with GPGKeychain, people not getting keys… I’m probably too digitally illiterate to manage such stuff.

first things first. There's no need to SCREAM at us. We're happy to help, though.
Sorry to see you go. Glad the uninstall did work for you. If you want to give things another go, I'll assist if you want.
Our Getting Started Tutorial is the best starting point. If you let me know, at which step you run into trouble, we can try to get this resolved.
All the best,

I did it yesterday, some kind person Thomas U sent me the link to the latest version and the uninstall app/function thing.
My mates were all wondering why they needed keys to unlock my e-mails. Its was very quickly a major nuisance - almost certainly my fault, but then I didn’t understand the video tutorial at all, nor the various ones online.
So.. old dog, new tricks, pah…

sure. Well the thing is, if let's say a friend of yours is not using OpenPGP mail encryption and does not have a key, then you are not able to encrypt any mail to him using GPGMail. That is, why I am not sure about the point of your friends being unable to decrypt all your mails. That should not be the case. Maybe they were mistaken your signature as encrypted content (which it isn't)?

My friends had no GPG tools on their computers. When they received ordinary unencrypted e-mails from me, they were still asked for a key. They could read and see my e-mail, but some little message / pop-up got tacked onto my E-mails asking them for a key. The result was that all of a sudden some of my friends and work colleagues knew I was using PGP. Given the nature of my work, that’s not clever.

that sounds very strange. If your friends are not using OpenPGP and receive an unencrypted email they should not be asked for any key at all. I think this is some misunderstanding here. If this is indeed the case, a screencast of such a received email and the behavior you describe would be most helpful.

Me too. I didn’t understand it. But anyway.. I’ve got a business to run and things to do.
