The default DSA/Elgamal combination allows you to create a 4096-bit encryption
key. But anyway...

gpg --expert --gen-key
Please select what kind of key you want:
   (1) DSA and Elgamal (default)
   (2) DSA (sign only)
   (3) DSA (set your own capabilities)
   (5) RSA (sign only)
   (7) RSA (set your own capabilities)
Your selection?


You need Certify, Sign, and Encrypt capabilities which is the default
configuration. Enter Q to continue the process. Be nice, use your real name as
part of the UserID creation.

When you go to encrypt, provide the keyID you wish to encrypt to, eg
The key generation process will tell you the key ID; ie, in the email you sent,
the key ID was 2D64B2BE.
