Configuring Mutt , and gmail account?
I'm a newbie and need some guide with Mutt. I don't know how to configure it , even worst , where to start ... i've installed it. I want to use it with gmail. I tried many muttrc on internet and even tried to configure my own muttrc but still no luck. fetchmail is install on my system... Please guide me , as i really want to learn. I also read the mannual on many websites .... spent few hours reading and try myself but i still cant successfully configure it. Thank you.
dont worry it can be done ;)
i made it to work as i wanted my system to send me an emial when it finished a certain script
Here is how to make mutt send email using ur gmail account
1) Logon to ur gmail account , in settings -> Forwarding and POP
enable pop for all mail
2) Download nbSMTP (nbSMTP is a simple SMTP)
NOTE : u have to have openssl , libssl-dev installed
3) setup mutt by making a file named .muttrc in my HOME
here is mine :
folder-hook . "my_hdr From: <firstname.lastname@example.org>"
set sendmail="/usr/local/bin/nbsmtp -U username -P password -d gmail.com -h smtp.gmail.com -f email@example.com -p 587 -M p -S"
NOTE : ofcourse u have to enter ur username and password
Finally test it out by typing :
echo "It Works" | mutt -s "It Finally works" firstname.lastname@example.org
as for recieving here is a site i have found :
i search libssl-devel in yast2 , didnt found any so i leave it ...i've installed openssl-devel and all other i done as you said..i get this error when try to use make comannd on nbsmtp which configured with ./configure --enable-ssl ...
make: Nothing to be done for `all'.
