Beginning with High Sierra beta 10.13.2 17C76a when replying to non GPG encrypted or signed mail, GPG tools crashes Mail. Mail stops and completely unloads. It will start again, but any attempt to reply to any mail causes another crash. I’m removing GPG Tools until this is resolved. Please advise.

When replying to non GPG encrypted to signed mail I should be able to respond without crashing Mail.

    Hi Mike,

    we became aware of this problem last night when Apple released the next beta of 10.13.2.
    It‘s quite surprising that Apple would touch a major code part between Betas but unfortunately in this case it has happened.
    For us that means, that we have to re-reverse engineer the composing part, which might take quite some time.

    We hope to have an update for you soon.
    For the time being, you will have to temporarily disable GPGMail by removing it from /Library/Mail/Bundles

    Thank you for reporting this issue. This discussion will be updated automatically once we have a fix for the problem and you will be notified.
