"Mutt" - no chance to enable!

Hello all,

if someone can give me a path how to enable "mutt" to have an ability to send mails - i don't know!

To read my e-mail everything seems alright, but to send an e-mail - no chance.

After searching for many sides in the www, and trying a lot of preferences in "sendmail" and "postfix" too, hope by s.o in this forum, with a "mutt" configuration in function.

I have no mail-server directly, the way it is an "ISP" (i think) "Internet Service Provider" with different ip-numbers, also here are two computers as "DHCP" clients.

May be in Slackware i don't need "postfix" at all (because i installed it later), but which program i need, or which comments to write in ""?

I don't know:-)!

There is a handy guide on setting up sendmail to be a forwarding agent for your mutt e-mails. The webpage is, and will in the first little bit show the process for setting up sendmail to forward. If there is another solution I have not come across it (either in mutt, or through another means), and would love to know about it.

I'm battling a machine with no sendmail server set up, that I do no have root access to, and need mutt to use an external mailserver.
