It works with Kmail, but not with Evolution. When I get a signature from someone whose key I don't have in my keyring, if I get it in Kmail, in the inline format Kmail understands, then gpg will automatically search for the key when it attempts to verify the signature. If I get it in Evolution, I have to manually request the key with gpg --recv-keys <key ID>I had never even thought to mess with this until I ran across this thread. I just opened up my .gnupg/options and added the following: keyserver wwwkeys.pgp.net keyserver-options auto-key-retrieve
Ah-ha! That's the option I was missing. I didn't have the "auto-key-retrieve" line in my options file.
and everything works fine. As a matter of fact, I just checked your signature on this message using that setup. I'll send you an encrypted message directly to make sure I've got the right key.
Looks good so far. I added the keyserver-options line, tested it on a message I didn't have a key for before, and it worked as advertised. Where DID you find that extra option? I couldn't find it in my gpg manual. I figure if I missed that one, I may have missed some others, too. -- All private email sent with PGP encryption. Email for key.
