I started to use GnuPG more seriously when I migrated to KMail from Netscape
Communicator. I have some questions. Far ago I created key pair for one
e-mail address which is not valid any more. I also submit that key to public
key server. I lost key pairs for that address. Of coarse I can download back
public key, but secret one is does not exist any more. Is there way to remove
obsolete public key from servers or will it stay there forever?
Another quesion will be similar to previous one. I created key pair and one
extra UID for that key pair and submitted public key to servers. Afterwards I
removed UID and exports key again, but UID stay on servers. Is there way to
submit key again without extra UID?
My last question is about signing. I don't sign keys of persons which I
personally don't know. But if my public key is signed with someone do I need
import it to my keyring again and then submit it to public servers so others
can read signature? Probably stupid question, but I didn't find any suitable
text which discuss this topic in enough depth.
Thanks a lot. Marian
