You don't appear to have built a trust path between one of your
trusted keys to Trey Sizemore's key.  If you're certain the key
946886AE really belongs to Trey Sizemore you can sign it locally
(gpg --edit-key 946886AE; and use the lsign command).  *Your*
signature on the key will assure gnupg that you trust that key.

Sometimes broken MUAs or MTAs trigger this error.  Browse the archive
of the gnupg-user mailing list (http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=gnupg-users&r=1&w=2)
for possible causes and explanations.

Are you sure you want to specify this in the global configuration file?

It definitely takes some time to get used to the concept and
resolve technical problems, but once you're done you'll be fine
for eternity.
