If you're encrypting something intended for someone other than the email
recipient, you're not wanting to encrypt the email, but some document
(or file or whatever) within it. Just encrypt it with "gpg --encrypt"
and mail the resluting .gpg file as an attachment. The recipient of the
mail may then deliver the encrypted .gpg file to the ultimate target,
for his eyes only. Public Key Encryption at its best.
