I’m using GPGMail with Mac Mail on High Sierra.

I’m able to read encrypted messages, but when i try to compose a message the Lock & Sign buttons in the compose window are missing. Respectively i cannot encrypt or sign the e-mails i send.



Lock & Sign buttons be present in the compose window.

    Hi Vladimir,

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

    Please double check the email address you are using in > Preferences > Accounts does exist as user ID in one of your keys.

    The encrypt and sign button will only show if that is the case.

    All the best,
