I can't stop encryption being done with a wrong key

I have a friend whose gpg key became corrupt. He created a new key, and I
imported it. Then we discovered that KMail insists on trying to encrypt using
the old key, even though I have changed his addressbook entry to reflect the
At this point we thought it was a KMail issue, so I moved to Thunderbird for
answering his mail. Signed mail in both directions is no problem. He can
send an encrypted message and I can read it. The new key is fine. However,
when I send an encrypted message to him we hit the rocks.
In Thunderbird I have only a minimal addressbook. I set his record to use the
new key for encryption, and I can't see any way that Thunderbird should know
about the old key. However, the test email I sent him was signed by the RSA
subkey of his old key.
Can someone please explain to me how this could be happening, and what I need
to do to correct it? Should I remove his old key from my keyring? If I do, I
assume that I won't be able to read his older messages.
