Yeah, looks like either a CKBI* problem or maybe an issue in GnuPG. Try
including it in gpg.conf along with any other keyserver-options.
It ain't automagic according to the man page:
When using --refresh-keys, if the key in question
has a preferred keyserver URL, then use that pre-
ferred keyserver to refresh the key from. In addi-
tion, if auto-key-retrieve is set, and the signa-
ture being verified has a preferred keyserver URL,
then use that preferred keyserver to fetch the key
from. Defaults to yes.
Maybe it once was a default behavior, but it doesn't appear to be in 1.4.9 and
later. Neither windows nor linux refreshed from the "preferred keyserver' until
honor-keyserver-url was included with the other keyserver-options.
Often if you wish an explicit behavior you must explicitly set it.
BTW, this is really a GnuPG config issue not an Enigmail issue. If you think
GnuPG's behavior is broken, post to GnuPG-Users or GnuPG-Dev.
FWIW, you should probably also update the keyservers as there is no guarantee
you can force others to obey this preference. I tend to turn it off since i have
a keyserver on my local LAN.
