Uploading multiple keys to key server

I have 2 email which I use mostly , I have generated keys for both emails. I was able to upload my key for one email account but not for both. Is there a restriction on the number of keys that can be uploaded to the key server? Can you have more that one ?

    Hey Winston,

    first a question: are you aware that you can use a single key for several mail addresses?

    • double click any sec key entry
    • key inspector opens up
    • go to "user IDs"
    • hit "+" below the top field and add a second or third mail address

    Still you might wanna have a separate key for each of your mail addresses.

    That is also fine and uploading should not be a big deal. There are no limitations whatsoever concerning uploading keys.

    Should you run into problems that might be related to key server issues. You might wanna try going to GPG Keychain Access > Settings and try another key server from the default list.

    Hope this helps,

    I like that single key multiple mail address option better. That resolves my issue.

    Thanks Steve.
