Sean, take MFPA's advice and try different combinations of spaces and
angle brackets as above. I would be very surprised if gpgmail scanned
the gpg.conf or the key files directly. It's far more likely that it's
asking gpg to encrypt to an e-mail address that looks like $this.
Figuring out what the "$this" is should allow you to use the group line
