That is a missing feature. You may add
to your gpg.conf - this should solve it.

I have to check.

I plan to support this but it is not easy because MAPI seems to
translate quoted-printable to 8-bit at a very early stage. Thus we
would need to emply some heuristics to revert this. Further the MIME
headers are not available as they have need sent; some more heuristic
is required to fix this.
Verification of signed and encrypted messages work because fortunately
Outlook can't look into the encrypted part ;-)

Whatever you like. We are working on WinPT to smooth the integration.
We are also working on a updated of GPA. Enigmail's key manager is
pretty nice; you may as well use that one.

I have removed this option because I don't think it makes any sense
and because it is actually dangerous: Usually the more sensitive
information is is an attachment (e.g. a PDF) and not in the body
("please find attached the current plan as agreed upon on 11/11/05").
