Suppose I have a GPG key for someone that I’d like to contact, but I don’t have their email address...is there a way to reach them through their GPG key somehow?

Probably a long shot, but thought I’d ask. Suppose I have a GPG key for someone that I’d like to contact, but I don’t have their email address...is there a way to reach them through their GPG key somehow?

I know their username, but the email they used for isn’t a valid email...is there a way around this? I just need to send them a message urgently. Thank you.

    Hi Kyle,

    do you have some means to contact them? The GPG Key is not in any way to related to a medium with which to communicate with them. But if you have, we can guide you through the steps of using GPG Services to encrypt any text to them.
