    The only safe way to exchange public keys is in person[or have the key be signed by someone you have exchanged with in person who verified it in person].  Otherwise you are always vulnerable to man in the middle attacks.  You may be able get away with posting it somewhere only you have access, but e-mailing it will always be very sketchy if you are being paranoid.

    Can you e-mail an encrypted e-mail to yourself?
