Hi Caitlin...

1) Since you use Yahoo-Mail, you cannot use an eMail Programm to download the
mail, right? OK, then you don`t have any other choice but to copy and paste the
encrypted message to an textfile (like in notepad)

2)  Same procedure as in 1) Copy-paste-notepad....and then you can import the
key without any problem

3) Yes, copy the whole text into a file and then you can compare the
fingerprints with the fingerprints published on keyservers or you compare it
directly with the owner of the key!
