Mutt Configuration of GPG and From field

Mutt is one of those programs I have a love-hate relationship with: I hate to love it.  It's flexibility and almost infinite configuration options makes this email client one of the best and worst to use.  Once you get mutt configured you'll want to put the configuration file in the …
