Yes, it might be a gpg question.
What I ment was this:
gpg can get one key (or more) if given as key ID/fingerprint and import it. The problem is that this: 
a)is tedious
b)doable if you actually have the key ID/fingerprint. If you only have the email address it won't work (or I don't know the gpg magic here). Enigmail is able to just import a key by known emailaddresses (to my knowledge at least)

I know that sylpheed uses the gpg keyring. At the moment I have to ask any contact for their key ID, which makes the public key severs a bit less usefull.
