We can not verify all email addresses in your public key certificate as 
yours, just because we have verified your 'preferred email'.

I would suggest:

1) Remove all other user IDs except the one with preferred email, as 
described on: 

2) change validity term of your public key certificate to 1 or 2 years.

Than you can upload your public key certificate to Cryptonomica and 
verify it. Fingerprint (and your private key) will be the same.
