I'm using Enigmail 0.82.4 on a win32 box, at the bottom of the Basic
Preferences configuration window is a space for "Keyserver".

Enigmail will use this if specified by including "--keyserver <entry>" on
the command line sent to GnuPG.

If the entry is blank, Enigmail relies on whichever, if any, keyserver is
configured in gpg.conf.

A future version of Enigmail will offer a selection of keyservers (user
configurable) from which to choose.

(Werner, David: Has any thought been given to supporting multiple
keyserver entries in gpg.conf and polling them in succession like the PGP
GUI does when autoretrieving/searching?)
