Well it depends on what you want to do.

E.g. you want to sign your emails with pgp.

You can use Mozilla/Thunderbird Mail client and http://enigmail.mozdev.org/

Enigmail is an extension to the mail client of Mozilla / Netscape and Mozilla Thunderbird which allows users to access the authentication and encryption features provided by GnuPG (see screenshots).
Enigmail is open source and dually-licensed under the GNU General Public License and the Mozilla Public License. You can download and install Enigmail from the Download page. See the Help page for post-installation instructions.

    *  Encrypt/sign mail when sending, decrypt/authenticate received mail
    * Support for inline-PGP (RFC 2440) and PGP/MIME (RFC 3156)
    * Per-Account based encryption and signing defaults
    * Per-Recipient rules for automated key selection, and enabling/disabling encryption and signing
    * New: OpenPGP key management interface

Here is some technical & howto info:
