Following reading a recent blog post [1] I decided it really is time I sorted
out a better way of logging into my email with Mutt. My plan was/is to store
the password in the Gnome Keyring as a central placed used for other passwords.
Sadly I can't find a way of accessing that password from the CLI. From my
research it seems that it is not yet possible to do so, but I thought it worth
a quick post in case somebody knows of a way to do it.
