As I wrote to you separately, you can carry on using PGP/MIME but most
Windows PGP/GPG users wont be able to decrypt/verify it. And there is
the case that many PGP/GPG Windows users AUTOMATICALLY delete
attachments unless they come from a known source.
So if you want your encrypted or signed messages to be decrypted or
verified by most people, use inline coding, not PGP/MIME.
PGP/MIME is a feature of the mailer, not PGP or GPG, and many mailer
plugins do not generate PGP/MIME to RFC2015, in Windows at least. Until
they do carry this capability, you are simply banging your head against
a closed door......
