Importing an attached key can be done via right clicking on the 
attachment icon, choosing Open With... and then entering 'gpg 
--import'. It's not necessary to save the key and then to run gpg 
--import on the file.
Importing keys which are directly embedded into a message (inline) will 
always require copy&paste.
