not to Evolution, there is no such option. Evolution just calls gpg in

recipients. These addresses can be also key ids, but then the sending
server (for example SMTP) may fail with it anyway.
Try to setup gpg(gpg2) itself to ignore certain key for that particular
user. I guess it's possible, but I do not know it for sure, neither I
tried it earlier. After a quick look, something like:
$ gpg2 --edit-key XXXXXXX
seems to do something close to what you are looking for. Use 'help' in
gpg prompt to get list of available commands. A 'list' command shows:

when the key is disabled.
