Is it possible to have Evolution fetch someone's PGP public key

GPG supports fetching keys from LDAP keyservers, so you might be able
to get the functionality by setting auto-key-locate keyserver-URL.

True - with the caveat that LDAP (port 389) is likely to be blocked
across boundaries [firewalls] in a lot of environments.

heh. If he wants to fetch data from LDAP, he better doesn't have a
firewall blocking it ;)

With keyserver-URL method you specify a url to the ldap server you want
to query (eg. your company LDAP). Alternatively, you could set that as
your default keyserver, and specify just keyserver for auto-key-locate.
