~/.Mix and the binary at
/usr/bin/mixmaster. nymphemeral automatically searches for
Mixmaster files at those locations and you do not need to configure
anything (as explained on [mixmaster]).
Mixmaster just needs to be configured through the
file. A very simple config file could be written as follows:

Adding more mixes to the chain will probably increase the latency to deliver your messages. That is actually not a bad thing, but you should decide how long you are willing to wait to exchange messages.
If you followed Connections (Whonix), you remember that we will

SMTPRELAY will tell Mixmaster to use that specific connection.
nymphemeral should be ready to tunnel via Tor messages sent using Mixmaster!
