Till the update to GPG Suite - 2013.07.31 the older version (GPGMail-2.0a21) works with Mac OS X 10.8.4. works without any problem.
After the update I'm not able to send encrypted mails. Signed mails are possible. But the arrive with the note (decryption broken).

A second problem: Encryption of documents ist possible. But no decryption: Decrypttion failed ... Operation cancel) Code = 99.

I tried: Deinstall - Install – Deinstall - restart the macbook and so on. Nothing helps.
Do you have an idea?
Thanks and greeting, Carl Werner

    Hi Carl,

    could you please post the contents of your gpg-agent.conf file
    You can find it using Finder and pressing CMD (Apple key) + Shift + G, typing ~/.gnupg and pressing enter
    After that you should see the file to attach.

    Hi Luke,
    sorry for my late feedback.
    As attachment I send you the "gpg agent.conf"-file.
    But: Perhaps this is now no longer useful for you. Because I had to work with encryption over the weekend, I'm temporarily gone back to the previous GPG-version. This was done by installing the GPG-Ttools on the "first-step"-GPG Website. With the "old" software version everything works fine. But of course I would like to use the new version as soon as possible.
    Kindly regards, Carl
