How can you hardcode a password to Mutt in Ubuntu?

It should apparently be placed to a .muttrc. However, I have not been successful in that.

Maybe this Linux.com article on Training your Mutt will help.

Let's start by looking at a basic POP configuration. 
If you want to retrieve email from a POP server, 
you'll need to set the following in your .muttrc:

set pop_user = "username"
set pop_delete = no
set pop_pass = "password"
set pop_host = "pop.myserver.com"

Also look at: Mutt: how to safely store password?
