I cannot see any keys on Keyservers, and cannot find them by looking them up via email. I also cannot retrieve my OWN keys with email look up…this needs fixed ASAP as this is a critical component of the whole system…

The email look up to work

    Hi Adv4n6,

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

    Which key server address are you using? You can find that information in GPG Keychain > Preferences > Key Server.

    Can you share the email address you are using for your search?
