Encryption is a cumbersome process, and decryption is flawed. Keep working at it, boys and girls.

Did you contact their support? Would you mind sharing some details about what you think is not working and what is flawed? Cause if user error is the root of the issue, a half star is a funny thing to give...

Monkeyjunkey, I don’t understand your statement because RustyIron's remark is just a comment, not a rating. I’m not picking a fight, just trying to understand.

GeoProf: No Problem. It was a rating (until I contacted MU). Also even as a commant it is helpful to exactly not a single person on this little planet.

I'm all in for critizising stuff, if you have an argument to make. If you are just doing random rambling because you had a bad dream at night, I don't think it's worth the effort :)

This solution is the best one who I ever found to encrypt and decrypt mails or text. It's quit simple to install it and config it.

Great to see, that this project is now back under 10.8 (sadly this takes a lot of time, because since OS 10.8 it was broken / not fully supported in Apple Mail).

As of version 2013.07.27 the project is now calling the full set of tools "GPG Suite". The suite contains the whole show, same as the "GPGTools" package. IOW: New name, new icons, new installer, same stuff:

GPGMail
GPG Keychain Access
GPGServices
GPGPreferences
MacGPG2

Two new launch agent files are installed with this update:

/Library/LaunchAgents/org.gpgtools.patch-uuid.plist
/usr/local/MacGPG2/share/org.gpgtools.macgpg2.shutdown-gpg-agent.plist

There is an alias to this last file located inside:

/Library/LaunchAgents/

You'll also find these older files in the same location:
org.gpgtools.Libmacgpg.xcp.plist
org.gpgtools.macgpg2.updater.plist
You can custom install any part of the suite as you like.

I don't yet know if this version works on OS X 10.8.5 beta or 10.9.0 beta.

Gnu Privacy Guard remains geek ware, meaning that it is difficult to set up and use by an average Mac user. The learning curve for new users can be extremely steep with a lot of questions asked along the way. However, patience provides rich rewards because GPG lets you:

1) Digitally sign your email with a verified public key. This let's receivers verify that you, and only you, have sent them an email. This can be extremely important.

2) Use unbreakable encryption on any file and any email. You can even use overkill encryption if you wish to be especially careful. With in already incredible amount of cybercrime and cyber-espionage on the Internet, this can be profoundly important.

If you use the email features, keep in mind that encrypting email on your end requires the use of a source email address associated with your GPG key AS WELL AS a receiving email that ALSO has its own publicly available key. Otherwise, no encryption is allowed. However, digital signing is always available.

I have so far tested the current versions of GPGTools and GPGMail with OS X 10.7.5 and had total success. The new version of GPGMail provides support for OS X 10.8. I will be testing these current versions with 10.8.3 and 10.8.4 beta. If there are issues with either, I will post here in another message.

Installing GPGTools/GPGMail is extremely easy. The hard part begins when you have to create your first key, upload your public key to the public server, and begin to use its features. Never by stymied by the learning curve. All of the features work. It simply takes patience and time to figure them out and gain enough experience to be comfortable with them. Excellent documentation is now available. You'll find links to the docs at the end of the installation process. Read them carefully through, then use them step-by-step to get yourself going.

The effort put into creating GPGTools and keeping them compatible with ever changing OS X is slow and painstaking. Please appreciate these efforts by putting GPG to work for you and by donating to the open source project. GPG is entirely free for all Mac users and it works beautifully once you understand the geeky details involved. Thank you to everyone who contributes to this terrific and critical project!

If you are a USA citizen and need a reminder of what GPG is for, here is the 4th Amendment of the US Constitution:

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

Here is what Benjamin Franklin had to say about liberty and safety::

"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."

So far a flawless update of a well polished MAC gpg utility. I sent another modest donation today to show my appreciation for a product I could never create myself.

Under OS X 10.8.2. it makes e-mail appear as empty in Mail.app

So, as pointed out in requirements above, only use with OS X 10.7.

Everything but Mail works with 10.8.2; you'll also want to grab the GPGServices 1.7 update. if you donate 20 Euros to the cause you can get a beta release that includes a Mountain Lion Mail component. So far it seems to work flawlessly.

You can actually donate any amount, but they do deserve 20 euros for all their hard work and generosity keeping these open source and up to date.

Stay tuned. This is the best MacPGP software out here.

Sure, it may not have obscure features that even the Classic
MacPGP 262 once offered, but the fact of the matter is that
it works for most tastes and occasions.

Full Mountain Lion support (Apple Mail isn't officially working)
is on the horizon.

So far as I can tell, everything else works under Mountain Lion,
and you can get the latest builds anytime you'd like - except
for Mountain Lion Apple Mail support. Is that worth it for you?

It was for me.

Install 20120317 with GPGMail 201 (a30) at your own risk, if you're on Mac OS 10.6.8. Since installing the new version I am unable to reply to emails or compose a new email from scratch. Other plugins: ASP, Herald, Letterbox, MailFollowUp, MailHub, MailRecent, MailTabs, MailTags, Rocketbox, TruePreview, Letter Opener. The previous version of GPGMail worked fine with Mail and these plugins, so GPGMail is definitely the perp here. Fix this! Now!

Okay, found the error. The GPGTools Installer doesn't check the operating system for all the GPGMail component. It tells me that it will install GPGMail for Snow Leopard, but installs the Lion version instead. If you're on Snow Leopard, install the current GPGTools, but download the GPGMail v1.3.3 for 10.6 here – http://www.gpgtools.org/gpgmail/index.html – and install that as well. Then it should work again.

GPGTools Project Team (developer) replied on 18 Mar 2012
Hey Michael. Could you please try the nightly version of our Installer (which contains a fix for the problem you ran into) form here: http://nightly.gpgtools.org/.

And on a more general note: should you run into issues, please use our official support page here: http://support.gpgtools.org/. We don't get notifications for every single MU comment and it would be impossible to keep track of all the various Software distribution sites across the web. So posting your problem on MU is not ideal, since then we won't know about the bug and can't work on a fix.

Let us know if the nightly solves your issue (ideally via the support page).

Thanks and all the best :)

Runs super on OSX 10.6.8. Looks beautifully, runs like a charm. Encryption of mails within Thunderbird 8.0 and encryption of files without problems. NOTE: You have to remove the GnuPG.prefPane of the older version 1.2.2 by hand or the prefPane for this version stays empty. Other than that: FIVE STARS!

Dear GPGTools Project Team: Thank you very much for this project and your efforts. Just to let you know that with a stable Mac OS X 10.6.8 (10K549) and a stable Mail 4.5 (1084) GPGTools-20111224.dmg (GPGPreferences-0.9.2.dmg also installed) Mail crashes upon launch.
Repairing Privileges and after a Disk Warrior 4.4 same problem. Only un-installing GPGTools-20111224 Mail came back to life; but we still need your "little pearl" that was working OK with GPGTools-20111117.dmg Kind regards, Michael Palacio

Hey Michael, could you please open a discussion on our support page so we can further investigate this issue? (http://support.gpgtools.org/) You are the first to report this problem. Please provide any additional information possible (http://support.gpgtools.org/kb/faq/how-can-i-generate-debugging-information). Also it would be great to post a link to the support thread on MU so others can chime in, if they experience the issue as well.

Happy xmas to all of you :)

Dear GPGTools Project Team:
Yes of course, will do so. I know I should have had channeled (my) the problem at the support page, sorry, but I panicked when I couldn't open Mail and respectfully tried to warn you and other users. Will install again 20111117 that I have (or try to obtain "Bytes'" 2011127) and later upg. again to 20111224 and report. Will try it also on a friend's Lion/Mail 5.1 also to compare.
Kind regards from Argentina and thank you for your prompt support, michaelpalacio AT gmail DOT com
