i get lots of those frozen puppies too, but they're almost ALL
due to spam attempts (reply-to or envelope sender are munged to
prevent us from figuring out who sent them so they can't bounce

I use Debian/GNU Linux version 3.0;
Linux server 2.4.20-k6 #1 Mon Jan 13 23:49:14 EST 2003 i586 unknown
DEBIAN NEWBIE TIP #74 from USM Bish <bish@nde.vsnl.net.in>
After "apt-get install pgp" first generate your keys, then
add the following to your ~/.muttrc:
	set pgp_default_version=gpg
	set pgp_autosign
	set pgp_sign_as=<your key id>
	set pgp_timeout=7200
