A Man And His Mutt
A man's best friend is his email client.

| Road Test |

Getting and installing Mutt is a piece of cake, and shouldn't take you more than ten minutes on a good day. First, drop by the official Mutt Web site, http://www.mutt.org/, and pick up a copy of the latest release (currently, version 1.2.5, although, if you're feeling particularly daring, you can road-test the newer 1.3.4 release).

Next, untar the files into your working directory,

$ tar -xzvf mutt-1.2.5i.tar.gz

and start the traditional configure-build-install cycle.

There are a number of interesting options you can configure at compile-time - type

$ ./configure --help

for a list - but the ones I usually use are the

$ ./configure --enable-pop --enable-imap

options, which set up Mutt to access mail on POP3- and IMAP-compatible servers.

Once the configuration is done and a Makefile generated, it's time to build the program

$ make

and then install it.

$ make install

Unless you've specified an alternate installation path, Mutt (and its ancillary files) should get installed to /usr/local/bin/

You can test your installation by typing in the program name at the command line - Mutt should pop up and display the contents of your mail spool.

$ mutt
