I'm using one key pair for multiple email addresses. But I think it
depends on the usage of your email addresses. If you use one for
business and don't want your partners to see your private email address
(maybe something like bunny309 at, then I'd prefer two key
pairs ;).

But I'm not using gnupg for long now and I'm curious what other say,
too. Maybe there are best practises about this topic?
