This seems like a question you'd want to ask the MUAs themselsves.
when you say "enigmail does not recognize the key", how did you test it?
in icedove+enigmail 1.6, if i right-click on an attachment that is of
type application/pgp-keys, i get a menu option "Import OpenPGP Key",
which seems like it does what you would want to do with an e-mailed key.
