    I'm looking to encrypt files on my mac and have a windows user open these files. I also need the windows user to encrypt files and send them to myself on the mac and be able to open the windows encrypted file on the mac.

    I did a search and seen .dmg can't be opened on windows. Is there anyway to open a dmg on windows or encrypt a file that both windows and mac can open? Any help is thankful!

    Try pgp or gpg

    You both ned to be using the same software.
    If you like to buy things look here: http://www.pgp.com/
    If you like free open souce software look here: http://www.gnupg.org/
    gpg is basically the free version of pgp.
