My favourite mail client is mutt. At work we have an Exchange mail server, and I wanted to use mutt for my work e-mail. Today it works. (I am using Fedora 19 beta)
Our mail server supports IMAP access, so reading mail is easy. But the difficult part, is sending e-mails.
In a first attempt, I tried this in the mutt configuration:
set smtp_url="smtp://email@example.com:587" set smtp_pass="mySecretPassword"
I think this has worked for me somewhere in the past, but now I get the error message 'No authenticators available.' So I had to try something else.
Now I am using msmtp to send my e-mails. I installed it from the repositories:
yum install msmtp
I created a configuration file: ~/.msmtprc:
account myaccount host webmail.our.domain from firstname.lastname@example.org auth ntlm tls on tls_trust_file /etc/ssl/certs/ca-bundle.crt user mylogin ntlmdomain MYDOMAIN password "mySecretPassword" port 587 account default : myaccount
In the mutt configuration, I removed the smtp-setttings, and added
And guess what. It just worked (TM) :-)
