I think GPG has a Windows version, though I don't know how easy
it is to install and get going, and I don't know if it can
be added to Eudora and such to do easy inline decrypts.

A pointer to the Windows version of PGP and/or GPG which is
easy and supports common mailers would seem to be a nice thing 
to have in our FAQ. Anyone know?

We point our clients to here:

When installed, the software automatically "attaches" itself to Outlook,
Outlook Express, Eudora and a few other mail clients.  It is VERY easy
to use.
