Just because he uses windows doesn't mean he has to use quite possibly
the worst piece of software *ever* written.  There's a few relatively
sane email clients available for windows.  If he refuses to learn to use
a new mailer, then he can live with opening signed mails as attachments,
break virtually every rule of email netiquette, risk getting/spreading
viruses, etc.  I won't lose any sleep over it.

Curse my natural showmanship!
