Perhaps we write a howto in the TDE Wiki. I'm using it since 10+y w/o issue.

Important is to setup the keys in kgpg and the sign/encrypt and decrypt
functionality in kmail.

There is always these two encrypt and decrypt. For the encryption you need
the private key. 1-2y ago I provided pinentry-tqt. I don't think it got
into the mainstream yet. Otherwise you have to use some other pinentry
(gnome,kde, terminal). This is setup in the gpg-agent config.

So presumably your key is setup correctly in kgpg and kmail

First you verify the key you want to encrypt for in kgpg and trust it (it
becomes green), then you can use this email adress (gpg identity) for
encrypting mails.

I even sign these messages from time to time as others do.
