http://gpg4win.org/download.html , but later you wrote that you installed
(and uninstalled) it already. In fact, gpg4win 2.1.0-rc2 comes with GnuPG
2.0.17. The 2.x series MUST use gpg-agent and gpg-agent DOES use a graphical
pinentry. Depending on how you install gpg4win, GTK or Qt pinentry is used.
They have slightly different behavior concerning focus. If you did a default
install, then Qt is installed. If you install JUST GnuPG and disable all
other packages (documentation doesn't hurt), then GTK is used.
> I do not know how to configure the GPG-agent
It does not need to be set up but you may tweak it by creating gpg-agent.conf
in the GnuPG home directory and maybe add a line with "default-cache-ttl 86400".
But it uses pinentry GUI and that dialog is even problematic for non-blind
since it is sometimes hidden behind other windows. Mind that if you use GnuPG
2.x (requiring gpg-agent), then you must also set Enigmail to use it (in
EXPERT OpenPGP preferences -> Advanced -> "Use gpg-agent for passphrases".

Then GnuPG 2.x may not be for you. Are there features the 1.4 series doesn't
provide that you really need (such as different passphrases for multiple keys)
because Eningmail doesn't provide for that? If not: 1.4 is still up-tp-date
and will be for long ...
