Aha! This is a different problem. Have *you* signed this key? A key is not 'valid' until someone (such as yourself, or someone you trust) has signed it. You can't trust an invalid key. True, PGP's wording is a bit bad; too bad they don't say "Unvalidated" or "Unconfirmed", etc. - -Jason Martin - -- Don't read everything you believe.
