    Hi Jon,

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

    I was able to search, find and download the public key for email [email blocked].

    Which version of GPG Suite are you using and which key server? Also are you using any firewall software on your mac?

    Looks like I had a firewall running.

    Ive managed to download the public key though im getting a message back that its an untrusted signature

    Im I doing something wrong?

    There is an info message about that working in the screenshot you attached. The info message includes a link to a KB-article covering your question. Did you read that article already?
