GPG Mail: Never loads digitally signed messages

With the update to GPG Suite 4.2, I find that I get the spinning wait sign much of the time when I try to read a message that is digitally signed but not encrypted. I have tried quitting and even restarting the Mac. Removing GPG Suite appears to fix the problem. (But that defeats the purpose.)

I also find that when I reply to these messages (with GPGMail enabled), crashes.

I expected to see the content of the message, as I did in the past.

    I uninstalled GPG Suite 4.2 and reinstalled 2018.3. I do not encounter problems with signed but not encrypted messages under the older version.

    Hi Rebelsky,

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

    Please excuse the late reply, we are deeply sorry for not responding earlier. The amount of feedback we received in regards to the GPG Suite 2018.4 release was overwhelming. We are doing our best to catch up as fast as we can.

    The problem you were seeing is fixed in GPG Suite 2018.5.

    Let me know if that is the case and if you need further assistance.
