at what point are the passphrases required? if passwordless
login/scp is the objective, where are the passphrases used?

Interested in CUSTOMIZING MUTT to work the way you'd like?
Visit Tom Gilbert's site at http://linuxbrit.co.uk/mutt/ and
download his .muttrc to your home directory (save it under a
different name if you're paranoid like I am, then tell mutt
":source file/path/here" to give it a whirl). Wow!
