Using Mutt as an Imap Client

in your .muttrc, the relevant lines are:

set folder=imap://dave@apollo
set spoolfile="imap://dave@apollo/INBOX"

Perhaps you have been given a username like dave.mackintosh@xdroop.com; your mail server is voyager.xdroop.com; and you are using IMAPS instead of regular IMAP. In this case you need to make your specification as so:

set imap_force_ssl=yes
set imap_authenticators="LOGIN"
set imap_keepalive=60
set folder="imap://dave.mackintosh%xdroop.com@voyager.xdroop.com:993"
set imap_user=dave.mackintosh@voyager.xdroop.com
set spoolfile="imap://dave.mackintosh%xdroop.com@voyager.xdroop.com:993/INBOX"

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
