  The emtire SMTP server entry.

  I have serveral emtries in my .authinfo.gpg -- most without a
  password stored.

  There are two 2 servers that I don't want ANY information about
  stored on disk -- not even in an encrypted .authinfo.gpg file.

  Previously, one used `smtpmail-auth-credentials' for this.
