Out of the box, Outlook doesn't support PGP/MIME and won't even render
the plain text portions -- or, at least, such was the case the last time
I checked Outlook, which was some time ago: I try to avoid dealing with
Outlook whenever possible.

Thunderbird at least will render the plaintext.

I'm certainly not disagreeing with any of this.
