Hmm, have you tried adding

Been there, done that. 

It works with Kmail, but not with Evolution. When I get a signature from
someone whose key I don't have in my keyring, if I get it in Kmail, in
the inline format Kmail understands, then gpg will automatically search
for the key when it attempts to verify the signature. If I get it in
Evolution, I have to manually request the key with 
gpg --recv-keys <key ID>

I had never even thought to mess with this until I ran across this
thread. I just opened up my .gnupg/options and added the following:

keyserver-options auto-key-retrieve

Ah-ha! That's the option I was missing. I didn't have the
"auto-key-retrieve" line in my options file. 

and everything works fine. As a matter of fact, I just checked your
signature on this message using that setup. I'll send you an encrypted
message directly to make sure I've got the right key.

Looks good so far. I added the keyserver-options line, tested it on a
message I didn't have a key for before, and it worked as advertised.

Where DID you find that extra option? I couldn't find it in my gpg
manual. I figure if I missed that one, I may have missed some others,
