Tried to find a similar issue in previous discussions but was unsuccessful so bare with me if this was brought up before already. I am running 10.13.6 with 2018.3 but somehow when I start the check for updates in the gpgtools system preference pane i get there are no new updates and that i am running the latest version??? Is that a known issue? Because the latest version is basically 2018.5? Best regards

    ahhh it was disabled meanwhile? cuz i remember that i saw notifications for 2018.4 in the beginning. thanks for clarification! then i will guess the mail plugin will work again as well. in 2018.3 i don't see any indication it is installed anymore i realize right now. guess it isnt necessary to remove the mailplugin beforehand. just install 2018.5 over it?

    The beta that came with 2018.3 has expired. You should be fine just installing 2018.5 over your current installation.

    Let me know if that worked.
