## A basic secure .muttrc for use with Gmail

## Files to use
source ~/.mutt/aliases
#To use gpg encrypted PW
#decrypts and extracts password
set my_tmp=`gpg -o ~/.mutt/.tmp -d ~/.mutt/.pass.gpg`
set my_gpass=`awk '/GMail:/ {print $2}' ~/.mutt/.tmp`
#setts passwords
set imap_pass = $my_gpass
set smtp_pass = $my_gpass
# Deleting .tmp file immediately
set my_del=`rm -f ~/.mutt/.tmp`

##Account Specific Settings
# Change the following six lines to match your Gmail account details
#And Uncomment and edit if YOU DO NOT WANT to USE ENCRYPTED PASSWD.
#And comment out the top section that does the PW encryption.
set imap_user = ""
#set imap_pass = "my_PW"
set smtp_url = "smtp://"
#set smtp_pass = "my_PW"
set from = ""
set realname = "My Name"

# Change the following line to a different editor you prefer.
set editor = "nano"

## GMail Config
#(most of this should work with other IMAP accounts) 
## Basic config, you can leave this as is in most cases
# Not sure if timeout and keepalive value tweaking will help intermittent connection issues
# (time values are in seconds)

set imap_check_subscribed
set hostname =
set mail_check = 180

# Allow Mutt to open new imap connection automatically.
unset imap_passive
# Keep IMAP connection alive by polling intermittently
set imap_keepalive = 210
set postponed = "+[GMail]/Drafts"
set record = "+[GMail]/Sent Mail"

##Gmail-style keyboard shortcuts
macro index,pager y "<enter-command>unset trash\n <delete-message>" "Gmail archive message"
macro index,pager d "<enter-command>set trash=\"imaps://[GMail]/Bin\"\n <delete-message>" "Gmail delete message"
macro index,pager gi "<change-folder>=INBOX<enter>" "Go to inbox"
macro index,pager ga "<change-folder>=[Gmail]/All Mail<enter>" "Go to all mail"
macro index,pager gs "<change-folder>=[Gmail]/Starred<enter>" "Go to starred messages"
macro index,pager gd "<change-folder>=[Gmail]/Drafts<enter>" "Go to drafts"

## The below can be pasted in to ~/.mutt/aliases to be used
#or comment out the line in the Basic config section to keep all aliases here

##Address aliases follow.
#These eddress aliases are mostly given as examples,
#but all the addresses given are good.
#Most if not all of the GoogleGroups 
#and mailing lists require registration or membership
