  How to Set Up Encrypted Mail on Mac OS X
Subject:   Does Mail.app import a PGP public key?

Hi, I managed to get a certificate and use it with Mail, but a friend of mine uses GnuPG to sign his messages.
Is it possible to import a public PGP key to my keychain so I can send him encrypted messages? Or does it only work with certificates like Thawte's?

    You can download and install GPGMail which incorporated GPG into Apple's Mail.app quite nicely:

    Hi !

    Although PGP and S/MIME are both very effective systems, I am afraid that you would need to rely on a common technology to exchange certificates.

    Since S/MIME certificates can be imported in the Keychain so easily, your friend may want to get one too from the CA of his choice.

    Let me know if this helps !
