Hi! I get repeated questions about the password when I am running Apple Mail. Earlier versions has been fine, but this latest version is acting strange.

GPG using stored password in keychain, but it doesn’t seem to work.

Additional info
I have deleted passwords/caches through GPG settings panel, but the password question keeps coming back.

    Hi Johan,

    we are very sorry to hear you are experiencing problems with the latest version of GPG Suite.
    We believe this problem is triggered if a user has a custom GnuPG version installed along side of our MacGPG. From the debug log I can tell that that is the case for you.

    Could you please download and install our latest GPG Suite nightly build and see if it solves your problem. That page also has sig and SHA256 to verify the download.

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

    Hello Luke,

    Installed 2068n version, got the question once (expected after installation I guess) and then GPG seems quiet.
    Works so far! Thanks a lot for the quick help!

    Kind regards,
