  (1) create a key pair (pukey+seckey) with gpg:
  (2) configure your default key in gpg config.
  (3) before sending in neomutt use 'p' to choose signing+encrypting
      (eg in the SendMenu type p and s to "sign your message")
  (4) choose when to use signing+encrypting for given addresses

you *can* take a look at your private key.
but of course this does not mean that
you should show it to everyone. ;)
