"E-mail is the most widely used means of communication on the net. Convenient? yes -- safe? no. Encryption is what you need to keep your communications private. This article shows you how you can use the mail client Mutt and the open source replacement of PGP, GnuPG, to secure your e-mail."

"Most of you would have heard of mutt. Mutt is an MUA, a Mail User Agent, which is the program that you would use to send and receive mail. So, why use mutt when there are so many other mail programs available? A bunch of free and not so free mail readers exist, and each one has its pros and cons. However, apart from pgp which has add-ons for pgp/gpg support, almost no other client supports gpg natively. I could be wrong though."
