I have yet to test this, but just by looking at the code in kdepim-addons this seems to already be implemented since the beginning. When we were implementing this back in 2016, we were using some testing WKD server that @aheinecke operated (the presence of and keys in my Kleopatra is most likely from that time and instance).

Andre, is this infrastructure still running? Any chance I could get access to testuser10 again, so I can check what's really missing in this implementation?

From the "Confirm your key registration" (see last screenshot) button seems to be what this is about, right?

@dvratil I think the message has changed a bit with recent versions of the WKS server. Or is this maybe in a plugin that might not be installed on some distributions? At least when alexk tried it it was not processed on a fairly recent ArchLinux but he had such issues like plugin for crypto settings in KAdressbook not installed etc. so it might just be that. I can test this again but its probably best if we get you a test mail address with a forward for (which has WKS)

I will re-test it with KDE neon.
