As Doug has already said, not by default. Some email clients or
plugins (such as Thunderbird/Enigmail) allow you to define which key
to use when encrypting to a particular email address, others (such as
The Bat!) do not.
A user who cannot configure their email software in this way could
instead define group lines in their gpg.conf file along the lines of
group <foo at example.com> = <@example.com>
group <foo at example.com> = <bar at example.com>
group <foo at example.com> = <name at mydomain.test>
group <foo at example.com> = 0xDECAFBAD
