Is anyone using mutt for E-mail accounts. My provider Fastmail.com doesn’t seem to want to help me. There are several conflicting advice sites. Any advice help will be appreciated.
On this Leap 15.3 system, Mutt and the documentation package seem to be installed by default.
- Is the issue around SSL/TLS and/or POP3 and/or IMAP?
[HR][/HR]And, if anyone believes that, Mutt is “old”, the last changes made are dated on February 12, 2022 – <http://www.mutt.org/>.
Thanks, I’m reading the installed 12,000 line document…slowly.
I have Mutt (2.1.5) working with Gmail and OAUTH2 on Leap 15.3. These links helped me to get going fairly quickly:
Config for multiple accounts
Thanks for the links that I am following. My problem is that most of the online setup advice deals with Gmail accounts. I don’t use Gmail. My incoming mail goes to pobox.com and is redirected to firstname.lastname@example.org. It shows up in mutt. My outgoing mail is sent to smtp.pobox.com. As I explained this method works…
:~> echo "" | mutt -s "subject" -i file.txt email@example.com
…while executing mutt and using the menus, with the same addresses leaves me with…
CREATE failed: Permission denied
Same .muttrc for both.
This is my home directory .muttrc file…
set firstname.lastname@example.org set imap_pass="my eml password" set realname ="Ion" set from = "email@example.com" set folder=imaps://mail.messagingengine.com set smtp_url ="smtp://firstname.lastname@example.org@smtp.pobox.com:587" set smtp_pass = "my pobox password" set ssl_force_tls =yes set header_cache = ~/.cache/mutt set spoolfile = "+INBOX" set record ="+Sent" set postponed="+Drafts" set trash = "+Trash" set editor ="nano" set timeout=15 set mail_check=1 set check_new=yes auto_view text/html
