Copy gpg.conf and *.gpg from your GnuPG home directory on your Linux box
(~/.gnupg) to the GnuPG home directory on your Windows system

If you would like right-click Explorer extensions, you'll need to install
either WinPT of GPGshell. I prefer GPGShell.

There is an add-in for Outlook/OE called outlgpg. Can't expand more as
I've never used Outlook/OE.

Good luck,
