View sent emails with mutt
Hi.

When I write an email on the server using mutt, the email is stored plain text in ~/sent.

How is it possible to view these sent emails inside mutt?

Thanks,

RE: View sent emails with mutt
I haven't used mutt in a long time Smile The easiest thing is to start mutt by reading the sent folder `mutt -f ~/sent`
You may want to read Mutt's guide to learn how to switch folder (hit ? while mutt is open to see what the default shortcut is): https://dev.mutt.org/trac/wiki/MuttGuide/Actions and https://dev.mutt.org/trac/wiki/MuttFaq/Action have more details.

RE: View sent emails with mutt
Hi.

Thanks a lot. Your suggestion "mutt -f sent" works, but I was looking for a solution to get out of a running mutt session (where I read emails) straight into the sent folder.

Your links didn't help. No references to sent folder.

But ... after digging (for quite some time), I found this here:

Quote:to be used in UI for "change folder" cmd:
in mutt UI: c+sent<enter>

This works exactly as desired!
I can change from a running mutt session to the sent file and back!

Thanks for your kicks.
