I read the list via Thunderbird, because it comes to my Speakeasy
address which I read via Thunderbird.  But most of my mail comes to
caerllewys.net, which I read with mutt.  I thought back, and I think
I've been using mutt since 1992.  You get used to things that Just Work,
I guess.

Here's a handy little mutt hack that automatically enables
encrypt-and-sign to anyone you have a public key for:

send-hook . "unset pgp_autoencrypt"
source `gpg --list-public-keys --with-colons | awk -F: '{print $10}' |
grep '>$' | sed -e 's/^.*<//' -e 's/>//' | while read i; do echo
"send-hook $i 'set pgp_autoencrypt'";done | sort -u > .mutt_pgprc &&
echo .mutt_pgprc`
