IIRC, David Shaw already replied to this.

We will support HTML, AFAICS this should allow you to paste text from
Word to Outlook.

I have made a note to implement that. I don't think that this is
widely used.

For signatures this can already be done by setting an appropriate
option into gpg.conf.

For encryption (i.e. no recipient key available) I am proposing a
thing called PKA which as a side effect allows auto retrieval of
keys.  However this requires an widely deployed infrastructure
implemented in the DNS.  The future will show how this works out.
