allright so i took out the spaces
 i type: <mutt> in the terminal and i get

Error in /home/tc/.mutt/muttrc, line 13: stmp_url: unknown variable
Error in /home/tc/.mutt/muttrc, line 14: :587/: unknown command
source: errors in /home/tc/.mutt/muttrc
Press any key to continue..


so I press any key. then it asks me to accept or reject certs
I press a to accept always then it says could not save certs
then closes the connection

I'm pretty lost

i think i've got it all good excpept for telling mutt how to save certs and wich adress and port for stmp
of course i could use claws or just my web browser but i'd like to save system resources

also any advice on how to use mplayer.cli for optical media would be awesome
cdparanoia to rip and then mplayer to play is pretty simple but id like to save my self some time and just play cd's directly if possible

...
set stmp_url = 'smtps://smtp.gmail.com:587
...
Change them into this :
Code: [Select]
set smtp_url = "smtps://smtp.gmail.com@(your gmail):587/"See this : https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/296810/syntax-of-smtp-url-in-muttrc

please spare the insults. I realize what i did  by posting my info.
i'll check back in a few days once im done feeling sorry for myself.
I realize that mutt is ussually for system admins and i'm just making it hard on myself by not using a graphical email client. i bought a old machine to tinker with and i'm kinda forcing myself to learn command line before i get a newer faster laptop.
