I know this is the wrong way round to do this, but I've recently
acquired a windows machine at work and am using outlook. The simplest
way to get messages signed is to use pgp. But I can't seem to import my
secret keys into it. Any ideas (or places to look), pgp to gnupg is
pretty well covered...

The problem is you do not have the IDEA cipher installed.  Read:
