cmdline: Sending email without mutt and with msmtp something?
I am fighting with mutt. I got a segmentation fault.
So, no mutt now.
I would like to send email (postfix) with command line without mutt.
Which program / config would you recommand ?
Pfff.... Its very difficult
Figthing newbie :)

You could do it the oldskool way and telnet to your SMTP server ;-p or you could install the mailx package (or equivalent) and just "echo hello | mail -s subject user@host".
Finally, the solution from the n00b !:
1/apt-get remove esmtp mutt postfix sendmail nbsmtp sendmail smtpd mailx kmail sendmail-bin postfix nbsmtp mutt smtpd procmail --purge
apt-get install postfix mutt procmail
apt-get install postfix mutt procmail kmail
apt-get install msmtp #- light SMTP client with support for server profiles
apt-get install msmtp-mta
2/get the sources and compile the nbsmtp from the tar.gz (1.00 I did)
3/ gedit .muttrc
Is it working, let us know ? If I managed to do so, you can easily make it! lol
Enjoy DEBIAN & other Distros
mailx just works with sendmail or postfix
the problem is that sendmail and postfix do not allow the user to define the configuration in his $home
is there alternatives for users too , without root power ?
the login to smtp server is maybe too complicated for me, n00b
