GPGMail not showing and working in/with Apple Mail

after upgrading to macOS 10.13.4 my GPGmail plugin doesn't work anymore. I tried un- and reinstalling, moving the .bundle file from and to the Bundles folder (both in /Library... and ~/Library...). Nothing helped. Keychain is working, services too, also the preferences (GPGpreferences.prefPane) pane.

No menu item for GPGMail in Mail Preferences is visible, neither are the buttons for Signing and Encrypting when writing messages.

It would be great if you could give me some pointers on how to proceed.

    Hi SW & Toerk,

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

    GPG Suite 2184n nightly build and later will work:

    Note: 10.13.5 is the latest macOS release so if you are not yet on that, you may want to install it, to ensure you have all the latest security fixes from Apple.

    2018.2 is being worked on with highest priority and will be released soon.

    Let me know if the nightly does the trick and sorry again for the inconvenience.

    Thank you for the quick response - the nightly build resolved the same issue I was having.

    So once you've updated to the nightly you'll receive an update notice for the 2018.2 official release when it's ready.

    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.
