GNU Mailutils is a collection of utilities for handling electronic
mail. It includes lots of programs necessary for dealing with
e-mail messages. One of them is
maidag -- a general-purpose
mail delivery agent (see (mailutils)maidag section `maidag' in GNU Mailutils Manual).
The package can be downloaded from ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/mailutils or any of the mirrors (See http://www.gnu.org/order/ftp.html for a complete list of these. Please, select the mirror closest too you). The complete information about the package is available from its home page at http://www.gnu.org/software/mailutils/
maidag, first download and install GNU mailutils
(as usual the package is shipped with files `README' and
`INSTALL' which provide the necessary guidelines). Then
add to your `.muttrc' file the following line:
set sendmail="maidag --url smtp://hostname[:port]"
where maidag stands for the full file name of
maidag utility, hostname and optional
port specify the host name (or IP address) of the machine
anubis and the port it listens on. Notice, that
the default port value for `smtp' is 25, which means
that in most cases you will have to specify it explicitly.
For example, suppose you run
anubis on machine
`anubis.example.org' and that it listens on port 24.
Let's also assume you have installed mailutils in the default
location, so that full file name of the
maidag utility is
`/usr/local/sbin/maidag'. Then, your `.muttrc'
set sendmail="/usr/local/sbin/maidag \ --url smtp://anubis.example.org:24"
(the line being split for readability).
