GPGMail: Reature Request: Auto-Retrieve Expired Keys

When keys I have previously retrieved expire, GPGMail doesn't automatically retrieve updated versions of those keys.

I'd expect expired keys to be checked on first use after expiry, and at some interval after.

Additional info
Maybe this should be a separate preference to the existing "auto-retrieve keys" preference.

    HI Tim,

    thank you for your suggestion!

    We already have a feature request to add an option to allow for frequent update checks for expired keys and I've added your comments and vote to it. The number of votes is one factor that helps us to determine what feature to add next.

    Unfortunately there's no workaround for this problem at the time being. We're very sorry for that. This discussion will be updated however, when the requested feature is available.

    Have a nice day,
