    Had the same Problem, fond answers in other threads:

    "You have to go under the Mail --> Preferences --> General --> Manage Plugins and reactivate the GPG mail plugin." Worked fine for me.

    Hi Flemming,

    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.
