A little feedback: I tested this between my work mail account using Outlook 
2007 and GPG4win 2 and my gmail-account on a machine running WinXP SP3 US 
English, Outlook 2003 and GPG4win 1.1.4.. I used keys created previously with 
Gpg4win 1.1.3.. No Exchange-servers involved. All software at their latest 
service pack level and all critical and recommended fixes installed.

The RC1 release seems to work fine, except for some quirks with "Leave message 
open when processing done" that I have to uncheck every time I send an 
encrypted mail. Also I can't seem to get the background gpg4win programs to 
run all English menus; I get mixed English and Swedish menus for some reason. 
In either case I can't find any preferences page to set this. Cleopatra seems 
to be running smoothly once it's been started up properly.

Almost all settings are Greek to me in the sub programs (I don't speak Greek 
as it were 8-}), compared to WinPT et al with Gpg4win 1.1.4 and 1.1.3.. It 
might be a learning curve though. The novice manual offered some help but I 
think I need more than that, this is not critical in any way.

I got some errors initially because I use a S/MIME signature to digitally sign 
all my mails. Disabling this when I send an encrypted mail, solved the 

So far so good. Have sent a few test mails to an colleague of mine outside of 
the university to see if he also can see/unencrypt the mails properly. Will be 
back with more feedback then.
