When I try to open mail after enabling the gpg plugin mail crashes. I am running Mac OS Mojave using the trial version of gpg. This is only occurring on one of my Macs. I have tried uninstall/reinstall as well as removing the file from the Library path as indicated on your site.

No crashes

    Hi Justin,

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

    We have a ticket for this problem. I connected this discussion with the existing ticket. That means, should this discussion get closed, it will be re-opened as soon as the ticket is closed. That way you'll stay in the loop and get notified as soon as we have news. Feel free to open a new discussions should you run into further problems or need assistance.

    This KB-article elaborates on why GPGMail may not work with unreleased macOS major updates and what to do if you cannot revert to a stable macOS release.

    Please note that there is no official support for macOS pre-release versions. Should you rely on GPGMail for your productive work, please stick to the stable release channel of macOS.

    I was under the impression the latest version of GPG supported Mojave.

    It does. But we simply can't support developer versions (i.e. betas) of upcoming macOS releases. Apple keeps changing things and those changes are completely undocumented. You can find additional details about that in the KB I linked in my earlier reply.

    The KB also has a link to an Apple Feedback Form if you think they should be providing an API for and document changes.

    OK. I guess I am just lucky then that my laptop on the same version is not having the issue?

    Not sure, can you send the build number from both of your macs in that case please.

    No problem at all, but that explains the behavior.

    Hi Justin,

    Would you mind downloading and installing our latest hotfix GPG Suite?

    GPG Suite 2349n and later should address this problem.

    It might be necessary to re-activate GPG Mail in Mail › Preferences › Manage Plug-ins after installing the hotfix.

    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.
