That part works, but

* smtpmail is choking on the .authinfo.gpg interaction: details @

* using .authinfo.gpg doesn't address the topic, which is how to prevent
  the data duplication. Does smtpmail have some mechanism to extract
  server name, port#, etc from .authinfo*. Alternatively, how to elisp
  read-and-extract? (Unfortunately my elisp is pretty weak, so any
  assistance is appreciated.)

Feel free to reply directly to me as well as the list, and TIA, Tom Roche
