That is great news. Perhaps since Google has such a difficult time
returning results that indicate this, maybe some more documentation of
this effort being underway is needed.

Perhaps let me review what I have working versus what doesn't for me:

-OL2007 with Exchange Server and without (POP/IMAP mode) -- GPG4WIN 1.1.2.
-GPG Keys created via WinPT successfully.
-In OL: Go to send a message and "sign" it.  I have to access the
button via the Add-ins ribbon (found it no problem).
-- Type the message and hit send.
-- Key manager comes up and asks which signing key to use.
-- Key manager prompts me for the passphrase for that key.
-- At that point, Outlook crashes and gives me the "Do you wish to
report this error to Microsoft" dialog.
-- I don't have any recipient keys imported yet so all I can do is
sign (not encrypt) so I can't really test that yet. I tried
signing/encrypting a message to myself (a key I have) and the same
crash occurs.

Here's the info on the crash:

AppName: Outlook.exe   AppVer: 12.0.4518.1014  AppStamp: 4542840f
ModName: Gpgol.dll   ModVer:   ModStamp: 46c47b24
fDebug: 0   offset: 00019ddd

Hope this helps.

Maybe I'm further than others? Maybe not.
