I have tried to do this, but it still does not work. 

My GnuPG identity is specified as: "Conor McTernan 
<conor at>" 

So in Kmail I have created an identity called Conor McTernan 
<conor at> and in this identity I have specified my name 
to be again "Conor McTernan" and my email to be 
"conor at'. Once I have set this identity, I go into the 
Advanced Tab in the identity section and attempt to select an OpenPGP key, 
but  when the dialogue appears, there are no keys present. 

If I execute "gpg --list-keys" I get a number of keys that I have added, but 
none of them appear in Kmail. 

Sorry if I'm doing something stupid here, but does anyone have any ideas on
