Question GPG(or Mutt) creates a "no" file in my homedir


Sorry if this seems a silly question.

I recently started using GPG together with Mutt and I found that if I create or read encrypted mail it automatically creates an unencrypted copy of the message as a file called "no" (without quotes) in my home directory.

I have tried searching for an answer online but failed to find any. Could someone perhaps elaborate on what is going on?

Wild guess - you've added a configuration parameter (possibly in ~/.muttrc) and set it equal to "no", when the parameter's value is actually supposed to be a file path.
