Which of our tools is giving you problems?

GPG Keychain

Describe your problem. Add as much detail as possible.

I can encrypt anything however when I highlight an encrypted message and click de-crypt the message "Decryption failed: No Data. Code = 58" comes up. I cannot decrypt any messages. Please help

    Hi Tomas,

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

    We've seen this error in relation to blocked key server communication. But I wonder how this would be relevant during decryption. But just in case: are you using any Firewall software like Little Snitch? If so, could you temporarily disable it and retry.

    Does this problem persist after a restart of your mac?

    Oh and in which format is the encrypted message? Is it by any chance .rtf file format?
