Hello everyone,

I have three uids for a single key:

pub   rsa4096 2017-01-19 [SC] [expires: 2022-01-18]
uid           [ultimate] Martijn Fleuren <mart...@mafl.me>
uid           [ultimate] Martijn Fleuren <martijnfleu...@posteo.net>
uid           [ultimate] Martijn Fleuren (University mail)
sub   rsa4096 2017-01-19 [E] [expires: 2022-01-18]

the first one functions as a forwarding alias for the second one.

mart...@mafl.me has to be the primary one when i am sending a message
for enigmail to choose the right key, but when sending a message it has
to be martijnfleu...@posteo.net.

One solution is to keep swapping the primary key manually each time i
send or receive. But i find this unsatisfactory because they are just
names that refer to the same key. enigmail should be able to figure out
which one to pick. I have this set up in thunderbird under: account
settings > openpgp security > use email address of this identity to
identify openpgp key. I also have automatic reply-to set to the alias
address. I think the problem lies in that direction.

Does anyone have an idea of how to solve this? -- without removing the alias
