You could use gpg. It is available on Linux & Winderz (and other OS's).
You setup a keyring - directions abound but check out Mandy's PGP talk a
few years ago. The destination sets up a keyring as well. You trust
each other ... and encrypt the file. gpg is good . I use gpg to
encrypt a file that is sent to someone who uses PGP and al works fine.

Remember, all Windows machines are, by definition, fault tolerant.
They run Windows don't they!!
