Decryption doesn't work.

What did you expect instead

That my encrypted mails that were sent and received would be decrypted, so that i can read them.

    Hi Tatiana,

    thanks for taking the time to report this problem. It is a known issue and I have connected this discussion with the existing ticket. We have yet to find out, what exactly is causing this, but assume it is related to sleep / wake behavior of the mac. Are you using sleep mode?

    The workaround is, to simply restart your mac and you should be back in working state.

    We'll update this discussion as soon as we have news about this issue.

    I have removed your comment form the other discussion as that is about another issue. But do let me know if you are seeing the other problem as well, if that is the case (

    All the best,

    Hi Tatiana,

    good news. We think, this issue has been fixed. If you want to test the fix, please download our latest nightly GPG Suite. That page also has sig and SHA1 to verify the download. It would be very helpful, if you can provide feedback, as to whether the fix works as expected.

    If you have other questions you can open a new discussion any time.

    Best, steve

    Disclaimer: This is a development version which has not been thoroughly tested yet, so bugs or crashes are to be expected. Thanks for helping us test this fix.
