You mean with "Set Owner's Trust of Sender's Key" in Enigmail? That's
the wrong one. There's key validity and owner's trust. Key validity is
about whether you believe the key belongs to the person indicated.
Owner's trust is to what extent you trust that person to correctly
verify other people's identities.

You should sign the key to make it valid, not set its owner's trust.
It's a common misconception.



I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
My key is available at <>
