ok, so i edited my procmailrc file to use the system's own version of 
gpg-wks-server and now it parses the test email but is awaiting a 
confirmation and since i tested it from the command line and with an 
invalid address I'm not sure how to give it the confirmation it seeks. i 
did receive it's confirmation email to my catchall inbox but unsure 
where to go from here to continue testing it without simply using a 
legitimate key and email client. how do i pass it the confirmation it 
seeks via command line? Thanks.
