Whenever I launch mail app I get a prompt to purchase a GPG license.
I dont' want to be prompted every *single* time I open the app

I've already disabled the tickboxes for Encrypt Draft, Encrypt New, Sign New
in the plug in dialog
followed these steps:

to only uninstall the bundle but to no avail

No dialogs when I simply launch the Mail app

    macOS 10.13.6 17G2307
    GPG Suite 2018.4 2310 (bc31914)
    GPG Mail 3.0 1330 (724e6997) 29 trial days remaining
    GPG Keychain 1.4.5 1496 (25530e6)

    Hi hmackiernan,

    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.

    This KB-article explains how to uninstall GPGTools or GPG Mail only.

    We've updated the KB and you should be able to easily uninstall GPG Mail only.

    Let me know if that worked as expected.
