I am on a MAC running OS 10.7.5 with Mail Ver 5.3 - I have installed all the software and am able to send encrypted emails for all the keys I have without problem, however there are time I need to choose a key for encryption but I am not given the option to select a key. I know previous versions had the option as a dropdown but my system does not give me the option.

    Hi Mike,

    GPGMail 2.x for Lion is a complete rewrite so it doesn't have all the old features yet. What you want to do however is possible using the terminal and will most likely remain only accessible via the terminal:

    defaults write org.gpgtools.common PublicKeyUserMap -dict-add email fingerprint
    

    (Replace email with the appropriate email and fingerprint with the fingerprint of the key to use. remove spaces)

    Hope that helps.

    Are these features going to be added to GPGMail 2.x ? If not, is it possible to install the older version on GPGMail on OS 10.7?

    I have determined that I cannot install an earlier version on OS 10.7. Are you saying that the feature of choosing a key for an email will never be available again?

    Hi Mike,

    we've learned that not many people use this feature and thus it's very low on our priority list, especially with the workaround in place.
    Did you try the method explained above?

    And no, sorry, the old version won't run on 10.7. We've had to rewrite GPGMail since Mail.app completely changed in 10.7

    With the terminal command is it possible to use a domain as opposed to an email address? The reason I ask is that when using email to fax services one sends the email to [email blocked] which means every fax number sent to would have to be entered in terminal. With hundreds of fax numbers it is not practical. So I am looking for something like rule based system where you can specify the key to use whenever sending to the domain of srfax.com.

    Thanks for the help so far
    Mike

    Ah ok, that's indeed an interesting case.
    What I'm wondering, is there one public key for every srfax.com number?

    Yes there is a key registered for [email blocked] and this is the key we would need to use for all emails sent.

    Hate to say this but after installing on OSX 10.8.3 we found it crashing Mail on several occasions mostly when we try and view an encrypted message - the program asks for the password and then displays the message - if I then click on an unencrypted message and then back to the encrypted one I either get a "Unknown GPG error" or it crashes Mail.

    I also fail to see where I can select a key for encrypting a new message.

    Hi Mike,

    could you please check your Console.app and try to find any Mail crashlogs?
    They'd be really helpful for us!
