    Hi Stefan,

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

    We currently offer GPG Suite 2016.10 (stable) and GPG Suite 2017.1 (beta). GPGMail for macOS 10.12 Sierra is in beta. To switch to the beta channel:

    1. open GPGPreferences > Settings
    2. in the Update section tick the checkbox to 'Include beta builds'
    3. optionally also enable automatic update checks, to ensure you are notified about new beta releases
    4. press 'Check Now'

    After that GPGMail should be up and running again.

    If you see any trouble using the beta, please let us know.

    All the best,

    Sure, you can do that. The feedback regarding the beta has been quite positive.

    I'm closing this discussion. Should you need further assistance or have questions you can re-open this discussion here or open a new one any time.
