    Hi Oren,

    we are very sorry for your bad experience with GPG Suite.
    Unfortunately this happens due to a bug in macOS Mail on Mojave. We have filed the bug with Apple but it is unclear how long it will take them to resolve the issue.

    Following are the steps that should fix this problem:

    • Close
    • Open Terminal and run the following command:

    sudo rm -rf ~/Library/Containers/

    • Open

    Please let us know if that worked.

    Hi Gustaf,

    glad the workaround did then workout for you.

    Let's hope, Apple can address this problem sooner than later.

    @Oren: Did the workaround also work for you?
