This first line work fine in my script as the key have a email in the -- recipient
gpg --homedir /root/.gnupg --batch --no-tty --recipient  -o $f.enc -e $f

This next command requires a user to confirm and does not work in my script... it works with user intervention in command line, not in my bash script called in cron
gpg --homedir /root/.gnupg --batch --no-tty --recipient OurCompany  -o $f.enc -e $f

---- here is out put of link above run directly in command line ... - ----
gpg  --encrypt --recipient OurCompany  -o Testing_02012012.txt.enc  Testing_02012012.txt
gpg: 87F19A87: There is no assurance this key belongs to the named user

pub  2048R/87F19A87 2001-10-19 OurCompany  (336-658-4000)
 Primary key fingerprint: 29 51 7C 97 FD 77 50 2F  83 B0 51 B3 F5 18 2A A2

It is NOT certain that the key belongs to the person named
in the user ID.  If you *really* know what you are doing,
you may answer the next question with yes.

Use this key anyway? (y/N)
Below are my keys in the ring

# gpg --list-keys
pub   1024R/C9G50CC7 2008-02-11 [expires: 2013-02-10]
uid                  Our Companies Inc <>

pub   2048R/B7F19A87 2001-10-19
uid                  OurCompany (336-658-4000)
