GPGMail: issues with Mail app hanging

I’m having two issues, but I believe that they are related. (1) I will initiate a draft, complete it, and send and it will appear to have been sent but there is no record in the sent folder and the message is NOT sent. There is an initial draft (first line for example) in the draft folder but not the whole message. It is not even stuck in an “outbound” folder. (2) Messages fail to load and I just get the spinning “Loading.” I think (1) is occurring when a new message is trying to come in but (2) is happening. The only resolution to either of these issues is to force quit Mail and restart my machine. I’ve tried saving drafts to my local machine only and turning off encryption on drafts but that has not solved the problem.

I’ve never had problems with the and gpg tools so this is new to me.

    Hi Lindsey,

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

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

    Please create a new draft to rule out the possibility of the old one being corrupted in any way.

    All the best,

    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.

    Installed and looks like I'm still having the problem, although with the drafts, it looks like it got stuck in the same way but when I did the restart, my emails had actually gone through and were in sent (and folks were responding to them, so clearly out). But still have to restart otherwise looks like it's stuck in "sending" and "loading" new emails.
