For many Windows users, Thunderbird (or Seamonkey) with Enigmail is a very good
solution and works well with IMAP servers.
For Outlook there is a plug-in, GpgOL, for Outlook didtributed as part of
GPG4Win. I can't speak about how well it operates as I [dw]on't use Outlook.
Outlook has traditionally had severe problems with handling the OpenPGP
extensions for MIME, PGP/MIME. The GpgOL folks can comment about that better
than I can, and luckily, they usually follow this list.
