I've been pulling my hair out for hours trying to figure this out and I'm not entirely sure this is a unix issue (perhaps someone could enlighten me)
First off, I started from scratch installing mutt with yum. Mutt works perfectly if I don't use
set, but instead use
my_hdr to setup the header. Why? Not sure, but it really doesn't bother me as I prefer
my_hdr anyhow. If somebody thinks this is relevant to the issue at hand, I'm all ears for a solution :)
I am familiar with .muttrc, and this is where I've put the following:
my_hdr From: root <xxx@xxxx> my_hdr Content-Type: text/html ....
The above works perfectly. My problem lies with changing "root" to any other value. (ie: "root1", "john doe", etc...) Unless this value is "root", no email. I have a bad feeling that the problem lies with touchy spam filters on the receiving end, but as a last stab I thought I'd post this here for other ideas/views. Perhaps it could help someone else who is going through the same thing.
