gpg --trust-model always --pgp8 -r <Mr Y's keyID> -o something.xls.pgp
This wraps in the email. In a CMD window you would just type it on one
--trust-model always says to trust the key(s) anyway
--pgp8 is the most recent. There are also --pgp7, --pgp6, and --pgp2
-r <Mr Y's keyID> sets the encryption _r_ecipient
