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
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
Please PGP/GnuPG sign mail for verification and encrypt for internet security
My GnuPG Key ID: 0xEB389C4E | My PGP Key ID: 0x99DB10BD
Written with Becky! 2.00.00 Beta 32 and ATML and GnuPG Plug-Ins
