unable to send/reply to mails in mutt
I just started using mutt. I just went through some articles and set my .fetchmailrc as
poll pop.gmail.com with proto POP3 and options no dns user "firstname.lastname@example.org" is "svzard" here options ssl
# My email address set pop_user="email@example.com" # To ensure mutt doesnot put 'firstname.lastname@example.org in From: set from="email@example.com" set use_from="yes" set envelope_from="yes" # The test editor I want to use to write emails (the default is nano) set editor=vi
I'm able to read mails by running
$ fetchmail -vk $ mutt
But I'm not able to send or reply to mails using mutt. Only webmails can be downloaded.
What is missing here. I read the manual but could not grasp anything useful. Can you help me with the settings?
Btw, mutt -v on my system gives:
