    ^^^^^^^ this should read encrypt :D, assumed you want to reply.
    Sure, those public keys from others are needed to verify the
    signing too and in most cases it's completely useless, since
    99,9999999999% of the users don't own keys to verify the ownership
    of a public key. Importing keys to check singed mails without a web
    of trust is ridiculous.
