Hi Zach,

Just add the comments lines you want to gpg.conf

comment "OpenPGP Public Key:"
comment "OpenPGP Public Key ID: 0xFD04A326"

gpg.conf on windows systems is usually found in %APPDATA%\GnuPG which expands to
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\GnuPG

Create or edit the file with the text editor of your choice.

You may alternatively specify the Key ID and retrieval URL as headers in your
email message. In Thunderbird, select Tools --> 'Account Settings'. Then the
'OpenPGP Security' tab for the email address you wish to configure. The OpenPGP
header settings are at the bottom of the panel.
