Configuring Mutt , and gmail account?
Hello buddy,
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 :

set folder=~/Mail
folder-hook . "my_hdr From: <>"
set sendmail="/usr/local/bin/nbsmtp -U username -P password -d -h -f -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"

as for recieving here is a site i have found :
