Mutt: Mail disappears when saved (gmail)
New to mutt, been using it an hour now.
Used a page to configure mutt to access gmail
However it asked me if I wanted to save my messages (cannot reproduce to get exact message since I now have no mail, and I cannot find them)
now, apparently it saved all my mail, but I cannot find it, I hit 'c' to change mailboxes, it shows inbox, and gmail, I go to gmail and it has all ym folders. However I cannot find the saved messages.
As well I tried manually saving 2 messages and it asked what mailbox
I typed in my own names for them
it asked if I wanted to create it (each time)
I said yes
I hit c
the new mailbox I specified is nowhere to be found.
Where is my problem?
IIRC, I've not used mutt for years and wouldn't do so by choice, Mutt sometimes defaults to moving messages you've read to a file called mbox. Look and see if you've got a file in your home directory called mbox. If so that might contain your missing mail.
That was the problem. I changed my config so tyhat it does not move them anymore.
