You should use the modern crypto implementaion of mutt.  You merely need
to add

  set crypt_use_gpgme

to ~/.muttrc.  This uses a now also 10 years old mode of mutt which far
better integrates crypto than the old command based one.

will suppress all TTY output completely.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
