This message I would assume has a valid key.  But the message kmail is 
giving me says:

Message was signed by michael at rasmussen.cc (Key ID: 0x544AD855E3E80917).
The signature is valid, but the key's validity is unknown.

I don't interpret that as being quite the same as the key never having been 
uploaded. I would assume that if the key was valid, it has been pulled from 
the keyserver, but it is questioning the validity of the keyserver's rights 
to supply me that key.


Thanks Michael.

Cheers, Gene
