I use Icedove/Thunderbird together with TorBirdy. And now it doesn't find any keys anymore on the preconfigured keyserver: hkp://2eghzlv2wwcq7u7y.onion. I have no idea how to deal with this. Any suggestions where to start looking? Tor is working fine, I can also send emails ...

It seems to me, that this keyserver is offline.

At least downloading my key from the hidden service fails even without TorBirdy.

  • I just tried it again and the key server is online: 2eghzlv2wwcq7u7y.onion:11371/pks/… But still in IceWeasel/Thunderbird a request to the keyserver returns nothing. Also with other keyserver, that can be reached over Tor.
