#8332 closed enhancement (fixed)

allow additional keyservers and/or change default jondo

when i use different provider options for torbirdy 0.1.0 the keyserver settings never seem to stick after program restart

if use i choose to use jondo, the default keyserver is set at hkp://

when i change to hkp:// and restart TB, the setting does not stick

if i cant change this would it be better to hard-code this to the securer hkps?

NOTE: it may not be the fault of torbirdy, it may be that i use a portable install of both thunderbird and gpg. See ticket #8326.

the same seems to happen when using tor as the provider, in that the default keyserver is the .onion but when i change to another, the setting is reverted upon TB restart

i will enclose enigmail debug output when failing to retrieve keys using .onion keyserver

You can now set your own keyserver. To do this, open TorBirdy preferences, go to "Enigmail settings" and enter the keyserver(s) you want to use.

The default keyserver for JonDo has also been updated.

i don't see these options
is there a torbirdy update for 0.1.0?
I received an enigmail update to 1.5.1

These options will be available in the next release, 0.1.1. For now, if you want, you can package your own XPI from the TorBirdy repository and use that.
