Hi there!

After uninstalling, downloading and installing GPG Suite I don’t see any way of actually activating GPGMail. No signing of an email possible (buttons to not appear in the New Email window).
I even have purchased a support plan - but I am unable to enter the license key anywhere.

Being asked to enter the license key somewhere.
GPGMail enabled in new email editor window,

    Hi Frank,

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

    If you have just recently upgraded to macOS Mojave and can‘t find any signs of GPG Mail: Apple disables any installed plugins after installation and they have to be enabled manually.

    Let me know if this did the trick.
