<snip> Yes, this is also advisable. However, I can come along and add Marc Mutz <> to my list of UIDs and - given such a user (e.g. Micheal Mutz) exists, and he hasn't got a PGP key on the keyserver (yet), my key is produced on a search. It comes down hoe 'hard' you personal certification policy is. Some certify onlt the name part and don't care about the mail addresses (e.g. c't pgpCA) and others (e.g. P. Palfrader) check the mail addresses, too.
