mutt and envelope_from_address


Hello and mtia,

Fedora Core 6.

I have copied created under /root a muttrc file from a sample under /usr/share/doc//mutt-1.4.2.2/.
I also created a ~/.muttrc-local

In the muttrc-local I have added two variables.

Code:
set use_envelope_from=yes
set envelope_from_address="user@domain"
However when I send a mail, I now recieve errors on the above two variables saying they are unknown. I have read the man pages and much dcumentation and I believe that the above is correct, I have them excatly as shown in documentation. What am I missing?

mtia

[EDIT] Alternatively, if someone knows how to change the From: field via command line(shell script) that would be entirely useful as well.

Well, I use:

Code:
set use_from=yes
set from="test@host.com"
within .muttrc-local and all works, as far as via commandline I can -F /path/to/file.

Hope it helps someone.
