Hi, all.

gpg-wks-server sends a confirmation email with the following text/plain
alternative part:

This message has been send to confirm your request
to publish your key.  If you did not request a key
publication, simply ignore this message.

Most mail software can handle this kind of message
automatically and thus you would not have seen this
message.  It seems that your client does not fully
support this service.  The web page

explains how you can process this message anyway in
a few manual steps.

The FAQ merely references the following page on the wiki:

... and there are no instructions there for manual verification. Were
there instructions there before?
