Yes, I found this an read some of it. But I didn't find what I wanted.

I'm using it at the moment, but I'm not very happy about it.

Here it is.

        In your .muttrc add the following:
        set certificate_file =  ~/.mutt_certificate
        Also, you'll have to change you mailbox names.
        So, given the previous example, change it from
        <emphasis>  {imap.example.com/ssl}inbox</emphasis>
        Repeat this for all
        your mailboxes.
        Thats it.

I'd prefer to use linebreaks only, since I only need to specify some of them
in the above lines. Having a literal layout like this, it look fine as html
with lynx or so, but with X it looks quite silly.

Thanks again
