The Apple Mail app on macOS stores encrypted emails in plaintext inside a database called snippets.db.
The issue was discovered earlier this year by an Apple IT specialist named Bob Gendler.
The issue is not fixed at the time of writing, although Gendler told the company about it back in July. A fix is coming, according to tech news site The Verge; however, Apple did not provide a timeline.
