Hello, mutt newbie here ! :)

Postby a newbie » 2005-10-19 13:56


I'm prefer to use my gmail account in combination with mutt. I heard of fetchmail and i managed to get my .fetchmailrc configured.

Code: Select all
poll pop.gmail.com
proto POP3
port 995
user 'username@gmail.com'
pass 'yourpasswd'

Now I need to have a program that can use a existing smpt server and send mail trough that[1]/.

Oh and don't know how to configure mutt properly yet, is there some newbie friendly documentation out there?

It would be nice to have a working mutt that comunicates with gmail, sends mail trhough there smtp server :)

Thanks in advance,

gmail works like each other smtp-server. I suggest to "ssmtp" as a MTA.
