I've looked into it. Yes, I'm pretty sure that's the problem.

Mutt doesn't seem to recognize that option. I put it in my .muttrc file (I=
bound it to ESC V and I got this error:
check-traditional-pgp: no such function in map
BTW, ESC P doesn't do a PGP check either.

Could you help me with patches? I've spent all afternoon trying to figure=
out how to apply a patch and I just can't get it to work.
I'm starting with the very first patch:
patch-1.4.0.ddm.crypt-menu.1 (from )
dcarrera ~ $ ls
dcarrera ~ $ patch < patch-1.4.0.ddm.crypt-menu.1
Looks like a unified context diff.
File to patch:
I don't know what to type here. The man page for patch hasn't shown me=20
anything useful. I've looked everywhere and I just can't figure out why=20
this isn't working.
I hope you can help,
