I would suggest their very next step is to search, using their preferred
search engine, for a distinctive phrase from the "gobbledygook". One
phrase that the user may notice is common to the messages is: "BEGIN PGP
SIGNED MESSAGE".  If I enter that into a search engine, I get several
results, including a number of sites purporting to be tutorials or
introductions or howtos for either "PGP" or "The GNU Privacy Guard".
With luck, one or other of those will enlighten the user.
