OpenGPG Signing doesn't work.

Reported by Brian May | April 29th, 2014 @ 05:45 PM

I created a signing identity with OpenPGP and can sign messages with other email clients, but with MailMate, when I try to send the email I get the following error:

USERID_HINT <neutered>  
NEED_PASSPHRASE 0<neutered>A 0<neutered>A 17 0  

Doesn't this mean that it should be OK to sign?

Running gpg (GnuPG/MacGPG2) 2.0.22
and the latest beta for MailMate 4199

    Based on the output, it seems like it's hanging. You can try enabling debug output like this (in the Terminal):

    defaults write com.freron.MailMate MmDebugSecurity -bool YES

    And then launch MailMate like this:


    Part of the output is the gpg2 command used and its arguments. You can try that manually and see if that works.

    Thanks in advance.

    Ah, I think this is actually a known issue which I haven't fixed yet. A workaround is available with the following setting:

    defaults write com.freron.MailMate MmOpenPGPHashFunction -string sha256

    This is not a permanent solution, but it might work for you for now. (Restart MailMate.)
