- Installed GnuPG 1.2.1 (specifically, gnupg-1.2.1-1.i586.rpm

I can send encrypted/signed e-mail from Win2K to Linux and decrypt/read
it just fine on my Linux box.  However, I cannot successfully send

neither encrypted or signed."  What gives?
I created a key set in Linux, exported the public key, and imported it
in Win2K, edited the key under Win2K and ran trust and sign against it.=20
I then took the key set I created in Win2K, export, imported, trust &
signed the key in Linux.
Why is it I can successfully decrypt and read an e-mail in Linux
(running GnuPG 1.2.1) that was created in Win2K running GnuPG 1.2.1-1,
but I cannot read an e-mail under Win2K that was created in Linux?=20
Makes no sense.  Any help would be appreciated.
Linux to Linux: Encrypts/Decrypts & verifies signatures like a champ.
Win2K to Linux: Works just fine
Linux to Win2K: Doesn't detect that the e-mail was even encrypted.
