    Hi DesignWorks,

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

    Are you seeing any error during or after installation of GPG Suite?

    If you are using macOS Mojave or Catalina and can‘t find any signs of GPG Mail: Apple disables any installed plugins after installation and they have to be enabled manually.

    Let me know if this did the trick.
