Sharukh, and you followup folks --

% I am using mutt 1.4i w/ gnupg 1.0.7. Previously I could automatically
% download the public key of the author of the mail if it was not already in


% my public ring. I am unable to do this since upgrading to gnupg 1.0.7. I
% have a basically stock install of both mutt as well as gnupg w/ no major
% changes made to any conf/rc files. This is the output of gnupg now:

"No major changes made" sounds like you have not added

  keyserver-options auto-key-retrieve

to your .gnupg/options file.  That's one of the MANY high-impact changes
in 1.0.7 and, if you haven't already, it would pay very handsomely to
read ALL of the changes and docs that come with the new version.  Trust
me, I speak from experience.

Now, if that's *not* the case and you *have* updated your options file,
please let us know and we can start some real debugging.
