Saving public keys to keyring
Product: PGP Desktop/ PGP Universal Server
Platform / OS Info: Windows XP/ Windows 7
Severity (Major or Minor)**: Major
I would like to log a bug with PGP Desktop where public keys aren’t being saved to users local key-ring.
So we have a local pgp keyserver that each PGPdesktop client would search and find any bskyb users public key when sending an encrypted mail using the following policy chain when you hit send:
Once this has been found (Talking about local company keys found from keyserver) and the email is sent I would expect to see that public key in my key ring for future use as I have set the following in each PGPDesktop:
Tools, Options, Keys, When keys are found: 'Save keys to my keyring'
But unfortunately it doesn’t: (Is this some bug?)
We really need this option to work otherwise there is no point us using this product......for example:
You are sending internal encrypted mail for say years with this setup then for some reason the servers go down or there is some routing issue where PGPDesktop clients cant see the local pgp keyserver for keys before sending you would then need to ask everyone you have sent to in the past from the local keyserver to send you their public key.....but this should not be if you have the option selected to say 'Save keys to my keyring' when found.
