Signing confirms the message is really from you. If they don't have the tools then they can still read it, but obviously they can't confirm (without reading the key over the phone to you). Essentially without the tools it will just be a normal email with a string of weird characters stuck on the end.

Encrypting uses their public key, so if you are able to encrypt it means they must be able to decrypt it (unless they've deleted their private key for some reason).

If I sign something and send it to someone who doesn't have gpg, will he be able to read it?
