I’m having a problem looking at my own emails.

I can send encrypted messages (it likes my key phrase) but when I look at my sent messages, I can’t decrypt it, nor can I read messages that I send myself.

To be able to read the messages.

    Hi Scott,

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

    Could you please download and install our latest GPG Suite nightly build and see if that solves your problem.

    All the best,

    Hi Steve. Is there a way to restore my current version if this does not work?

    Yes, in that case just download GPG Suite 2017.2 from our homepage and re-install that.
