kgpg reads your keyrings, so you can use kgpg to import the key, or
gpg directly.

However, Kmail does not like sending to or verifying with _untrusted_ keys.

There is a "list untrusted keys" setting, but it's more reliable to
trust those people's keys you get signed email from.

One reason, maybe the primary reason, I use TDE is Kmail with mbox
files which I can save, and search, with standard text tools, as well
as easy gpg integration.

Reading this thread, I, too, have been frustrated by the general lack
of anyone caring about encrypting their email. I'm using the Gmail web
interface right now, there used to be a Firefox plug-in which
encrypted/signed Gmail, but the developer simply could not keep up
with how often Google "updated" (read: changed) the interface and
broke his plug-in.
