    Default mutt will send messages ok but won't save them

    I'm trying to use mutt to send the company's invoices. mutt will send them ok using the Zimbra server but it won't save the sent messages to the Sent folder.

    The .muttrc file is as follows

    Code:
    set from=facturacion@unitan.net
    set realname="Unitan SAICA - Facturación"
    set folder=imap://mail.unitan.net/
    set spoolfile=imap://mail.unitan.net/INBOX
    set record=imap://mail.unitan.net/Sent
    set postponed=imap://mail.unitan.net/Drafts
    set imap_user=facturacion
    set imap_pass=somepass
    set header_cache=~/.mutt/cache/headers
    set message_cachedir=~/.mutt/cache/bodies
    set certificate_file=~/.mutt/certificates
    set smtp_url=smtp://mail.unitan.net/
    set smtp_pass=somepass
    Thank you in advance for any help you can give,

    Pancho

    in your .muttrc file do you have:

    set copy=yes

    set record tells where to save sent email. by default mutt doesn't save outgoing mails. set copy=yes turns this on.

    Thank your for the input but it didn't help.
    Mail is sent ok but it's not being saved.

    Is there a log to see what's happening?

    @Panchux

    I just installed mutt in my ubuntu box, throw in your config, change to my server and login info. Send a test email, and it just work, email sent and a copy in Sent folder.

    I can see it in both mutt and web client.

    What version of linux are you using? Maybe the system default config is different.

    John, thank you for your time and effort.
    I'm using openSUSE 11.3.

    I mamage to append the email using a PHP script and the connection string to the server was {mail.unitan.net:993/imap/ssl/novalidate-cert}

    So I think I should use those values to get the email appended like smtp_url=mail.unitan.net:993

    I will try it later when I get to the office.

    Code:
    set from=facturacion@unitan.net
     set realname="Unitan SAICA - Facturación"
     set folder=imaps://mail.unitan.net/
     set spoolfile=imaps://mail.unitan.net/INBOX
     set record=imaps://mail.unitan.net/Sent
     set postponed=imaps://mail.unitan.net/Drafts
     set imap_user=facturacion
     set imap_pass=somepass
     set header_cache=~/.mutt/cache/headers
     set message_cachedir=~/.mutt/cache/bodies
     set certificate_file=~/.mutt/certificates
     set smtp_url=smtp://mail.unitan.net/
     set smtp_pass=somepass
    Since you are using 993, try the one above. You should be able to see folder content.
    Don't change smtp_url.

    Mail sends ok but it won't be saved.
    Since I've made this with PHP I won't be using mutt.

    Maybe there's something wrong with the compiled version I have.

    Thanks a lot,

    Pancho
