I don't know anything about mutt. do i have to start something in order for it to be able to work? is there a log i can look at to see what did or didn't happen making it not work?
Hmm...you have to find out how and where this script runs from.
It could be a cron job or it could have just been started manually.
It could be in rc.local even.
Either way....best to check the crontab and system cron to see if the entry for the script resides there.
Mutt is just a command line mail MUA package - similar to mailx or mail.
It does not run as a service or anything.
It is possible that your MTA (eg sendmail/postfix) may not have started?? You will need to do a bit of digging here, report back, then we can tell you the next step.
