Hi there,

every time I start (Mac) Mail, GPG Suite pops up with a registration window. If I past in my license key, it reports an "unknown problem". If I remember correctly, this occurs since the last MacOS update (10.14.3), but I'm not 100% sure.

Should not even ask again, but certainly should accept the key.

macOS                   10.14.3     18D42

    Hi Marc,

    we are very sorry you are experiencing issues with GPG Suite.
    We are seeing this kind of error with users who are using CleanMyMac. For some yet unknown reason, CleanMyMac seems to delete some very important files which are necessary to start one of our services.

    Please re-install the latest GPG Suite (no need to uninstall first) and everything will work again as expected.

    CleanMyMac v4.3.0 has been released and it should prevent this problem from happening again.

    Thanks to MacPaw for taking care of this.
