I am testing Enigmail with Thunderbird for Mac OS X. There is no
separate setting for keyservers. Enigmail is configured to use GnuPG by
entering in its Preferences GnuPG Executable Path. Therefore the
keyserver must be set in GnuPG's gpg.conf file, and Enigmail will behave
accordingly. BTW, it works great.
