I got a recent gunpg client from http://www.nullify.org/, the 1.0.6
binaries from www.gnupg.org would just crash (inside win32 api calls).

While we are on the topic of encrypted email clients, how does one get
people public keys so they can verify signatures? In the perfect world I
would meet everyone and get their key personally, but unfortunately I am
too slack :) (or is that fortunately?)

I noticed that enigmail checks www.keyserver.net for public keys (I have
uploaded mine to there), it their another common server to use? I
understand the lack of security in such a services (where did that
public key come from exactly?) but it is better than not being able to
verify an email at all. For mere mail signing I think that keyservers
security would be enough (due to the forethought required to compromise
a message).
