What you are doing is

   gpg -v -e -r ify test2

That is encrypt the file test2 for he recipient "ify".  IF you want to
check a signature, use

   gpg --verfiy foo.sig

Note the double dash.  BTW to get English message, you can do this

   LANG=C gpg .....

> keyservers are hkp:// and ldap://

Do not use these keyservers: They are broken.  Use,
another round-robin keyserver address or use one specific SKS server.
