Re: how to configure mutt?

Hello.

You don't send via POP3 - mutt will use your local MTA to send it, so configure that instead.

As for POP3 access - there's a whole lot of POP3 related settings you put in ~/.muttrc, try 'man muttrc'.

At least:

pop_host
pop_user
pop_pass (leave it unset and it'll ask you).

You will find some details in Mutt's manual.txt file, section POP3 support.

One way to access POP3 is by changing folder to:

pop://username[:password]@server[:port]
