gpg in batch mode - help

I am trying to encrypt a file with gpg in batch mode and can't make it work. In interactive mode evrything is great. I run this (I replaced original user-id and file):

gpg -r <user-id> --encrypt <file>

I get this message below and I answer yes and it's working

gpg: E65A726B: There is no indication that this key really belongs to the owner
2048g/E65A726B 2004-06-02 "<user-id>"
Fingerprint: 2B33 64AC D62E 9B37 2B88 7F8D AD4B C226 E65A 726B

It is NOT certain that the key belongs to its owner.
If you *really* know what you are doing, you may answer
the next question with yes

Use this key anyway?

In batch mode:

Here is the command I am using and the message:

gpg --batch -r <user-id> --encrypt <file>

and I get:
gpg: E65A726B: There is no indication that this key really belongs to the owner
gpg: no valid addressees
gpg: <file>: encryption failed: no such user id

I really appreciate any help.
Thak you

I'd suggest reading the documentation, more specifically
the gpg README and FAQ that are shipped with the app.
