I just purchase the upgrade to GPG 6 and applied in manage plugins. As soon as mail restarts, disables "incompatible plugin."

    This problem went away for me after I upgraded to 12.0.1.

    Thanks, wteiken! That's all it took. The OS Monterey 12.0.1 update.

    Hi Jim,

    as wteiken correctly pointed out already (thanks for chiming in) indeed the upgrade to macOS 12.0.1 fixes this problem.

    macOS 12.0 was not really to be released. The only reason it exists was, that the shipped hardware had the system on it and Apple had no way of bringing the hardware up to the latest version before distribution in time.

    Glad this is solved for you. I'm closing this discussion. Should you need further assistance or have questions you can re-open this discussion here or open a new one any time.
