	Well I installed Enigmail which at first thought I made another error,
but as I went to the web page for Enigmail I found an Installation
Manual that is about 1/4 complete but what was there opened my eyes. I
have OpenPGP all over Thunderbird and one of the many things it does is
hunt for Public Key's. You do need to have the signature key of the
desired person.

	This told ME why you want to advertise your signature key. I was
convinced it held zero interest. But then the Installation Manual
explained in just a few words why you want the signature key.
