Hi Tomas,

I have been using GnuPG 1.0,6 with IC and PGP FREEWARE 6.5.8. for windows 
since I started my online store and I've never had any problems decrypting 
messages on the windows machines.

Below is the info from RPM I'm using on my RedHat system (it's probably 
old, but it works)

[root at flem logs]# rpm -qi gnupg
Name        : gnupg                        Relocations: (not relocateable)
Version     : 1.0.6                             Vendor: Red Hat, Inc.

Install date: Fri May  2 10:50:32 2003      Build Host: daffy.perf.redhat.com

URL         : http://www.gnupg.org/
Summary     : A GNU utility for secure communication and data storage.
Description :
GnuPG (GNU Privacy Guard) is a GNU utility for encrypting data and
creating digital signatures. GnuPG has advanced key management
capabilities and is compliant with the proposed OpenPGP Internet
standard described in RFC2440. Since GnuPG doesn't use any patented
algorithm, it is not compatible with any version of PGP2 (PGP2.x uses
only IDEA for symmetric-key encryption, which is patented worldwide).

I hope this helps
