    Hi ahmedmiansyed,

    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.

    Hello Steve,

    it did - thank you very much! Interesting that I have not seen this plug in management before.

    Apple introduced this mechanism in macOS 10.14 Mojave. We're all still adapting :)
