Which of our tools is giving you problems? GPG Suite

Also, I have their key and need to encrypt files using their public key

Are you using any other Mail.app plugins? No

    Hi Peter,

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

    The following two Knowledge Base articles explain how GPG Services is used:

    • KB explaining how to encrypt and sign text or files
    • KB explaining decryption and verification

    Let me know if that worked as expected.

    All the best,
