Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

When sending an encrypted message to someone whose key is untrusted, if I
forget to check "trust the keys of all recipients" I am prompted with a list of
keys to select from, with the untrusted key not preselected. If I select the
untrusted key from that list and continue, the resulting error message is less
than user friendly:

USERID_HINT D5BF93B014A49700 Andrew Gallagher <>
NEED_PASSPHRASE D5BF93B014A49700 D5BF93B014A49700 1 0

Evidently gpg has not accepted the untrusted key for encryption purposes.

Expected behaviour:

1. If I explicitly and manually select an untrusted key in the list dialog box
it should temporarily trust that key.

Otherwise, there should be another method to temporarily trust a particular
key. "trust the keys of all recipients" has persistent state and needs to be
manually unchecked the next time a message is composed, which is potentially

2. The error message should be friendlier, e.g. "Key 0xFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF is not
