Yes Armin, there is! You need both Becky 2 and the GnuPG plug-in, but be warned GnuPG runs as a command line Dos program under Windows with no keyserver support. For this, at present, you will also need to download the freeware version of PGP. Becky 2 will allow you to Sign, Encrypt, Decrypt, and Verify but you will need to undertake key management through Dos. It is at the present time the *only* Windows e-mailer supporting GnuPG, although I understand The Bat! will support OpenPGP when v 2 is produced (don't hold your breath!). There is a version of Pine for Windows but it does not support GnuPG and nobody who has written PGP support for Pine under Linux that I have contacted has thought about Pine for Windows. So, for the moment, its Becky 2. Currently its in advanced Beta form and available from: This program is shareware (or will be when out of Beta) but the GnuPG plug-in is freeware. It is available from: It too is Beta, but very stable. If you want to download these, I'll be pleased to talk you (or your wife) through setting it all up! I like Becky 2 and the plug-in, as you can see from below!
