Error 71 mutt config


I am trying to setup mutt to send a file.

I set my ~/.muttrc up as
set pop_user=""
set pop_pass="passwd"
set from=""
set use_from=yes
set envelope_from="yes"
set folder=!mail
but I receive the following error.
Error sending message, child exited 71 (operating system error.)

chmod is the command to change permissions. EG:

chmod +rw somefile

a + sign gives permissions while a - takes away. r=read w=write x=executable

so chmod -w somefile makes it read only, chmod +x makes it executable etc
