The standard method is to sign the key or otherwise build a web of trust
from your signing key to their public key.
    a.  if all the public keys on your keyring are manually placed there
    b.  You really do trust all the public keys on your key ring
Then you can use the option --always-trust.

When I encrypt a file with the recipient's key I sometimes get the
"There is no indication that the key belongs to the user"
Why is this so and what can I do to eliminate this issue/error?
