Yesterday I already set this up successfully for my domain
(schiessle.org). I just thought that having the DNS record as well would
be a nice addition. But then I will just keep the WKD if this is the
One more question to the WKD. I changed my gpg.conf to:
auto-key-locate cert pka wkd keyserver
Does this means that gpg will try to find a WKD and a corresponding
public key automatically if I write a email to someone I don't have a
public key yet? Or will the lookup happen if I receive a mail?
