After generating new keys and uploading to the server, I tried to look up my key through http://pool.sks-keyservers.net/pks/lookup?search=, but the result is that keys not found.

p.s. I tried both the default server and hkp://pool.sks-keyservers.net server.

    Hi ayamt,

    welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite.

    Can you open System Preferences > GPG Suite and let me know which version of GPG Suite you are using?

    We would recommend to switch to the new key server keys.openpgp.org which is included in the current stable release 2019.1.

    If you have uploaded your public key to the new key server you will be able to find it via GPG Keychain or web here: https://keys.openpgp.org/

    If you haven't already, could you update GPG Suite, switch to the new key server and let me know if the upload worked as expected.

    All the best,
    Steve
