Using mutt for two different email accounts


Hi all,
I'm trying to get as command line as possible on my laptop, mainly because it doesn't have much memory and it's not that fast. So far I've gotten used to links.

My problem is that I have two email accounts that I use regularly and I want to get and send mail to them using mutt. I have Postfix, fetchmail and procmail installed. The distro is Ubuntu.

I've tried googling on how I can do it but everything that turns up is so in-depth that it confuses me. I really don't need to install a full fledged server (or do i?).

Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.

I realize you aren't looking for in-depth, but [THIS] page, A Quick Guide To Mutt, is the best out there. There is a full explanation pof how to set up Mutt for multiple accounts. It is about 2/3 of the way down the page. I would read the whole guide though. You will be on your way to being a Mutt maven =)

Thank you the link helped a lot. It's much better than the Postfix guide and all, at least to me someone with ADD.
