Can't Send to Keyserver

I'm shown an error which says, "Sending key failed. Send keys failed! Code = 0". I currently have no firewalls set up on my Mac, but no matter which keyserver I use, they keys will not upload to a keyserver.

    We have had two issues lately related to key serves. Both have been fixed. So please give the latest nightly version another try from here:

    Let us know if your problem persists. Should be fixed with the nightly.

    Hope this helps :)

    Doesn't appear to be fixed in the 4/15 nightly to me. Tried multiple key servers. Also noted that if you select another key server from the pull down menu in preferences, the key server reference disappears.

    Send keys failed!
    Code = 0

    Error text:
    gpg: sending key xxxxx to hkp server
    gpg: keyserver internal error
    gpg: keyserver send failed: Keyserver error

    @Brian Hmm, what other servers have you tried? Could you try:

    which has been working very good for me in the past couple of weeks. For me the behavior is: When I change the key server in GPG Keychain Access that setting is properly reflected in GPGPreferences when I open those after I have change the key server in GPG Keychain Access. You don't see the same behavior?

    So you see the error posted above also when you try using the sks key server?

    All the best,
