Some strange things have happened: 

first: on the interactive page I looked up the key
A18A54D6 and it did not show any result. Afterwards I typed olson grant
and got several keys listed but not the one we have been looking for
here A18....

second: I have seahorse as the gui tool to enter keyservers and keys.
However, I removed any other keyserver but
After that I type your suggestion:

gpg --search-keys A18A54D

and to my surprise it still looked up with no result.
This leaves us with two questions:

1. why do I not get a response for A18A54D6 on
2. where do we have to tune gpg and evolution on ubuntu 10.10 to look
for the correct keyserver?
