    I've generated a public/private key using OpenPgP but need some advice on how to proceed. Can you recommend a key server for OpenPgP. At the moment I really don't need to encrypt anything I just want to learn the technology so I can use it if I need to. Any advice is appreciated.

    One of the most popular public pgp key server is the MIT public keyserver.
    You can submit your public key there for download by individuals wish to communicate with you. As a security measure, you should first provide the your key fingerprint to your contacts first so they can verify the authenticity of the your public key after downloading it from the key server.

    There are many Keyservers out there, you only need to submit your key to one of them and it will be available for download from any PGP keyserver Worldwide, not only the one you submitted the key to.

    Here goes another keyserver you may want to use:

    PGP software also lets you specify what keyserver you rather use, you should be able to edit it and enter your favourite one.
