I belive it is the right way to keep the tools seperated.

But the problem is to know which tools you need and where to find them.
A friend just asked me what he has to do to get mail encryption and auto
signig to work on windows. Since i'm not using windows, and don't know
the tools, i can't help him.

What could solve that problem is if mozilla would load a webpage that
tells me where to find the tools after installation.
"If you want to use gnupg to encrypt you mail, please install the
following tools... [list of liks]"
Or if i could tell him to point his browser to "about:pgp" or to click
at the "About encryption/pgp" entry in the help menu.

thanks for naming enigmail, peter.
