I have tried to enter a "wildcard email" when gpg asked me for the email address during key generation. I tried "example.com", "@example.com" and "*@example.com", but all of them were rejected with 'Not a valid email address'. Is there a special syntax I should use?

I think the point you just made is the relevant one: Even if I would be able to create a key with a "wildcard email" associated with it, would the email client plugins, such as Enigmail, be able to deal with it? I guess that's a question for the Enigmail developers, once I figure out how to generate a key with a wildcard email via gpg.
