So why don't you use standard mail client such as mozilla
It support S/MIME and PKCS#11 so that you can encrypt/sign
messages and using smartcard!!!
You don't have to use gpg for this.

But you need to focus... What level? Programmer? Administrator?
1. Most popular for linux starting point is www.opensc.org.
2. Be sure your smartcard support PKCS#11 interface
3. Be sure your smartcard support pcsc-lite
4. Be sure your USB reader supports CCID driver
5. There is PAM PKCS#11 at www.opensc.org...
6. If you need one smartcard to be used on Windows machine and
Linux machine - talk to me...
