First off, please do not use HTML email. It looks ugly and is hard for
those of us who don't use it to read. Thank you.

from "man gpg":

       Set the proxy to use for HTTP and HKP keyservers.  This
       overrides the "http_proxy" environment variable, if any.

This is under --keyserver-options.

Which is a polite way of saying, RTFM.
