Yes, I can do that.  That's no problem.

The same here.  An unknown signature gets a broken pen and a know but
untrusted signature a pen with an questionmark.

I can also click on the pen.  Enigmail _tries_ to download the public 
key.  Then it says it can't find the server or it can't find the key. 
But tried with different (working) servers and with different keys... 
At least one key has to be on a server, don't you think?
