Did a mutt -f imap://localhost/ This time I got Username at localhost: root I pressed Enter Password for [email protected] I entered my root password, the same one I enter afte a sudo su command. I got Temporary problem- try again later. Login failed I did try later (a few hours) again and the a few hours again Same result. I sent an email to [email protected] using gmail.

Then entered <] I got telnet> Entered quit Got back to [email protected]:/home/albert# Did a telnet localhost 25 Then ehlo localhost Good results. I have spent hours on Google with this problem. No definitive fix except for "send an emailwill create malbox" Which did not help .
