I've imported the key manually, and the result is still the same (Bad
signature). GPGol has no problem verifying signature over that same
message in the same Outlook window.

I've set the appropriate fields for HTTP proxy, including user name and
password. WinPT still crashes on attempt to contact remote keyserver
when I ask it to search for a key.

Yes, both are reasonable things to do - but they don't apply to this one
particular case.
