you would want automation that is triggered when new files arrive.
Kleopatra features a graphical user interface, so it is not suited for this 
kind of automation.

Use the command line programs availalbe with Gpg4win, e.g. gpg
for encrypting as OpenPGP. 

Now you need a way to script your server to execute such a command
each time a new file arrives. To avoid one possible pitfall:
Otherwise you need to find a way to run a windows script on each new file
or you seperate the incoming files and the outgoing files by using two
directories and use the task scheduler to regularily copy and encrypt them 

Is this helpful to you?
