Things have improved somewhat since IC 4.8. Go to Administration >>
Preferences >> Encryption and select the PGP_KEY setting. If the key has
already been imported it will be in the drop down. If not, you can click the
'Add a GPG/PGP key' link to import the public key file. Then go back and
select the key for the PGP_KEY setting.

The ENCRYPTOR setting can be left blank and IC will find GPG on its own.

good luck!
