[Solved] How does the SMTP url look like

I cant figure out, how the SMTP url should look like. I tried:


But that doesnt work. Is that even possible?!

If I use smtp://$my_emailaddress:$my_password@box.domain.com then I get the error:

SASL authentification failed

(In case you are wondering. I want to use Mutt)

Edit: Okay sorry my bad. The $my_passwrord “import” didn’t work. With a plain password it works…

Neverneeded but this URL (Spanish) may help you: http://www.atareao.es/ubuntu/mutt-un-cliente-de-correo-en-el-terminal/

smtp URLs aren’t a general thing. You would need to compare mutt’s documentation to our mail client configuration requirements. You should be looking for something in mutt’s documentation that mentions STARTTLS though.

It looks like this is the right way:


with this setting:

set ssl_starttls = yes

At least it works this way :thumbsup:
