Turn on debugging in enigmail.  It's the last tab under preferences.
This will show you what errors you are getting.

I do it this way all the time.

That's up to you.  I have a variable set in my system, GNUPGHOME, that 
sets the directory for gpg to use.  If you don't have one of these set, I 
believe that it defaults to the directory that it is run from, but I 
could be wrong.

I also have the following line in a batch file that I use to locate keys:

gpg --search-keys --keyserver %1

So you can try it manually and see if the key is locatable.  Note that 
this means that gpg has to be in the PATH.
