Yes, that's how I have mine setup and it's been working well for
sometime. ISTR that all of the *keys.pgp.net are supposed to be linked
so that over time a key posted to one server will be available from all
of the servers. I've no idea how true that is, or how long any such
propogation would take, but I seldom ever come across gpg signed mail
that mutt won't find the key for.
