Steven Engelhardt modified
mutt so that it is able to use
SMTP to transfer messages. For the time being the patch is
not accepted by the mainline
mutt distribution, but one
of the authors of GNU Anubis(7), has tested it extensively and has found it to be quite adequate
for interfacing between
patch is described in detail at
http://www.deez.info/sengelha/projects/mutt/libesmtp/ and is
mutt versions 1.4.x and 1.5.3.
To use it, follow the instructions on the page mentioned above. Once
you compile the patched
mutt you will be able to use the
following new keywords in its configuration file:
set smtp_host = hostname
Sets the hostname or IP address of the remote SMTP host.
set smtp_port = port
Sets the port number to use.
set smtp_auth_username = user-name
Sets the username to use with SMTP AUTH command (optional).
So, assuming you run
anubis on machine
‘anubis.domain.org’ and it is listening on port 24, you will
add to your ‘.muttrc’ the following two lines:
set smtp_host = anubis.domain.org set smtp_port = 24
