After High Sierra upgrade, Mail must now be quit and reopened in order to decrypt newly received messages

What did you expect instead

Messages usually are visible in human readable format as soon as they arrive.

Describe steps leading to the problem.

An e-mail arrives that has been encrypted.

no other plugins

    Hi Acappelli,

    we are very sorry you are experiencing problem with the latest version of GPG Suite.
    We believe that we have seen this problem before, and hope to have a solution soon.
    Would you mind trying if de-selecting and re-selecting the message is enough to have GPGMail decrypt it properly?
