Mailbutler conflict still

Hi all. First post.
I saw that others have had mailbutler conflicts before. I have one now. Not sure who is hurting who so I'm posting on both forums.
Note that I found a workaround. You need to take either of the two folders out of the mail bundle folders in the library, restart mail, activate the other plugin (basically remove gpg or mailbutler, restart, open preferences and manage plugins, then activate the one that's there). Then quit Mail, put the folder you had taken out back in, restart Mail and then you'll have access to the manage plugins checkboxes again. Check the new one that you dragged in, close, restart mail, and all works as planned until the next upgrade of either plugin in which case you start over. Note that this has happened on both my desktop iMac Pro and my Macbook Pro.
Hope this helps anyone with the same problem.

    hi Cemil,

    I have the same problem. You speak of both forums but I can not find a forum on the page. Can you give me a link to the second forum?

    Hi cemil and Thomas,

    the problem you are seeing is fixed in our latest hotfix GPG Suite. Can you let me know if it fixes the problem for you?

    All the best,

    Thank you Steve, I'll try that in January. For now I have kicked Mailbutler.

    Thanks Steve. Seems to work here. Installed it on my iMac Pro with good results. I'll try on the MBPro later. Thanks for the quick fix.
