True.

No, but you are out of luck (AFAIK) for ready-made solutions.

What you can do is instruct exim to pass all messages through a pipe
as it delivers them.  In your system filter put
    unseen pipe "/usr/local/bin/gpg-key-retrieve"
(read the exim manual for setting up a system filter; it really is
quite trivial)

Then create the program "gpg-key-retrieve".  It needs to parse enough
of the message to determine the key's id and then merely run the gpg
command to retrieve it.
