I installed by mistake the recent version, but El Capitan isn't anymore supported. But I do need the oder MacOS…

I did not find a library with older versions…

Thanks for help.

    Hi Wim,

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

    To get back to a working GPG Mail on macOS 10.11 please

    1. download 2018.5 from and run the uninstaller after mounting the .dmg file
    2. download and install GPG Suite 2018.3
    3. optionally to update all components to the latest state download and install 2018.5 via Custom Install and exclude GPG Mail in the options to have all the latest components

    Let me know if this got you back to working state.

    All the best,

    I tried this, but the installer of 2018.5 does not let me install. There is an interception due to 10.11. I wanted to update all possible parts except the mail plugin to get things to work. I cannot upload my key e. g. – error 58, no data appears.

    Hi Alabay,

    we have since added a release for macOS 10.11 to our unsupported legacy versions page here:

    Note that really old macOS releases do not receive important security fixes from Apple. So if possible, it is recommended to move to a newer version.

    All the best,
