The most "complex" part is generating and sharing your public keys, which
can be as easy as:
gpg --send-key <your-key-id>
gpg --search-key <name-or-mail-of-your-friend>
gpg --fingerprint <name-or-mail-of-your-friend>
After checking (on the phone or on some other channel) that the fingerprint
matches, you can type
gpg -e <file>
to encrypt a file. The commands are for the most part interactive, hence "easy
Mail client integration becomes a must if you need to exchange more than
a few messages. I use mutt, but there are many other setups (Thunderbird &
Enigmail, claws-mail, etc.) that are PGP friendly.
