No chance to send mail with "mutt"!

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:-)!

Big smtp servers like sendmail and postfix are difficult to configure. For simple setups like yours (and mine) there are some smtp clients that will send your mail to your ISP. I use msmtp:
