Yes, but (info "pgg") should help you in some way.

The officiel Mailcrypt webpage has been last modified in 2002 (Thu Sep
26 01:19:49 PDT 2002) - http://mailcrypt.sourceforge.net/

Maybe it's not *officially* obsolete (if there is some sense of being
officially obsolete when a tool is still working), but apparently it's
no being supported anymore.

The "attachement" menu gives you a few hints:

C-c RET C-s -> sign 
C-c RET C-c -> encrypt 
C-c RET C-e -> sign and encrypt

Here is the relevant part of my config.  Hope this helps.

(autoload 'pgg-encrypt-region "pgg"
  "Encrypt the current region." t)
(autoload 'pgg-decrypt-region "pgg"
  "Decrypt the current region." t)
(autoload 'pgg-sign-region "pgg"
  "Sign the current region." t)
(autoload 'pgg-verify-region "pgg"
  "Verify the current region." t)
(autoload 'pgg-insert-key "pgg"
  "Insert the ASCII armored public key." t)
(autoload 'pgg-snarf-keys-region "pgg" "Import public keys in the
  current region." t)

;; Emacs should always decrypt and verify emails
;; automatically
(setq mm-verify-option 'always)
(setq mm-decrypt-option 'always)
(setq gnus-buttonized-mime-types 
      '("multipart/encrypted" "multipart/signed"))

(setq pgg-default-user-id "[your gpg identity]"
      pgg-query-keyserver t)

(setq pgg-default-keyserver-address "subkeys.pgp.net"
      pgg-encrypt-for-me nil)
