Hey, I just realized that I have a VPS. It had mutt opened in a screen session. I just pulled it up and it gave me the message that it received a TLS packet with unexpected length. That couldn't be related to HeartBleed, could it?

I get that usually if I've been writing a long email or something and (I think) the connection to the IMAP server has timed out. Don't think it's suspicious.

I have my mutt det up with gmail imap. Sometimes login fails and I get an email from google saying suspicious login rejected. Is there anyway to over come this? It happens when I am using a vpn usually but sometimes when I am not.

Can someone send me a link to a simpl .muttrc for pop3 email. I see lots of suggestion for imap but my service uses pop3. I am getting off gmail and want something lightweight. Thanks

+Uwe Scholz I did do that but I was unable to understand it at me level. I was hoping for someone to kickstart but I think I have it fixed now.

Hi, mutt downloads all 12k emails in my gmail account when I open it. Can I just limit it to the last 50? thanks

I use offlineimap and it works mostly ok (sometimes offlineimap hangs forever and I need to kill -9, but it only happens from time to time). http://stevelosh.com/blog/2012/10/the-homely-mutt/

About this community

Mutt is a small but very powerful text-based mail client for Unix operating systems
 
I need some help with my sidebar configuration. As you can see I have added starred and sent to the sidebar. The problem is the inbox. It doesn't say inbox! It says imap.google.... How do I change it to say inbox.

Hi,

having trouble with #mutt   + #davmail   .
After downloading some random percentage of mail headers, davmail would lose connection ("Remote host closed connection during handshake"), which is not the actual problem, but mutt would freeze with the message:
"msg_parse_fetch [a0006 NO Unable to retrieve message : Remote Host closed connect...".
Thunderbird, for example, would reconnect, as soon as davmail recovers.

Mutt also won't keep the downloaded messages/headers.

Did anybody come up with a solution for this behaviour yet?
Thanks in advance!

Hi -- hope I don't annoy anyone by cross-posting here from the Debian community.

I downloaded Mutt using apt-source and compiled it with the options I want, namely OpenSSL support, instead of the Debian repos' Mutt with gnutls. Now when I run 'aptitude update', I see Mutt listed. Will updating this way lose my specific compile options?

Yes, updating this way will install the standard Debian package. You may want to put that package on hold, or better, compile a new package yourself, if this is a version update or security update.

some eight years ago, i created a one-kilobyte setup file
to start off a workshop on using mutt:
http://www.guckes.net/Setup/muttrc.one-kilobyte

slightly bigger setups for a workshop in german and english are here:
http://www.guckes.net/Setup/muttrc.workshop.de.txt
http://www.guckes.net/Setup/muttrc.workshop.en.txt

maybe you want to extend on these for your own mutt workshops. enjoy!
