mutt usually creates PGP/MIME format mail when using pgp/gpg. This is
the best method to use. However, few mailers support it at the moment.
mutt also supports the older application/pgp format. Putting:
in you .muttrc will get mutt to ask you whether you want PGP/MIME or
application/pgp, defaulting in this case to PGP/MIME.
However, some mailers still get confused by this and think the whole
mail is an attachment (since it is of type application/pgp). For
sending mail to such people (e.g. Outlook with the PGP plugin) I have
two macros which can sign and sign/encrypt the body of an e-mail (bound
to S and N respectively). These can be run from the compose screen just
before sending the mail.
# macros for very broken mailers that want pgp data as text/plain
macro compose S "Fgpg --no-verbose --clearsign --armor\ny" "GPG sign as
macro compose N "Fgpg --no-verbose -v -o - --encrypt --sign --textmode
--armor --always-trust\ny" "GPG encrypt as text/plain"
These work, but are a bit of a cludge compared to mutt's proper PGP
support. Has anybody got a better version of these?
