Unfortunately GPGMail can't handle the error at this point.

Should your problem persist, please contact us at with the following error description:

gpg(51694,0x7fffc02583c0) malloc: *** error for object 0x7fb460601c80: pointer being freed was not allocated
*** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug

The mail to be encrypted and sent

    Hi Gaba,

    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.
    Please log out and back in after installing the nightly.

    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.
