Don't know how to do it in netscape but for pine, given you also have
pinepgp installed, read the README.debian in /usr/doc/pinepgp and
"add the following line to your "display-filters" section of your

_BEGINNING("-----BEGIN PGP")_ /usr/lib/pinepgp/check _TMPFILE_ _RESULTFILE_

if you want to check sigs (do this by editing .pinerc or using the config
option in the main menu of pine

and for outgoing mail,add the following lines to your "sending-filters" 
section of your configuration: 

  /usr/lib/pinepgp/auto _TMPFILE_ _RECIPIENTS_
  /usr/lib/pinepgp/sign _TMPFILE_
  /usr/lib/pinepgp/crypt _TMPFILE_ _RECIPIENTS_

You might also consider enabling the "compose-send-offers-first-filter"

Then when you send a message, you will be prompted for which filter you
would like to use.
