Hi all,

Is there any way I can import GPG keys from within Evolution? For
example, let's say I receive a signed message from somebody and I don't
have his public key in my keyring. I can see the icon on the bottom of
the message that says that the signature is invalid. Clicking on it, I
can see a text with the details. However, it is not possible even to
select the ID from that text so I can copy/paste it then in a terminal. 

So is there any better way of achieving this? 

Yes.  The canonical method is to add (or comment out) these in
your .gnupg/gpg.conf :

keyserver hkp://
keyserver-options auto-key-retrieve

The actual keyserver URI may be different.  There are others,
choose the one you prefer.
