Well it turned out that the username was incorrect. I was not supposed to use the email-address username but rather then I had to use my internal name instead. So this fixed the problem. Kind of embarrasing :D

I had to install mailx (on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS) to get automysqlbackup to send mail, even though mutt is required, and I also had postfix installed. apt-get install heirloom-mailx Other helpful information: The mailx configuration file may be either /etc/mail.rc or /etc/nail.rc, depending on the version of mailx.

As described in this announcement, this is not directly related to either mutt or openssl but effects all non-OAuth mail clients equally.

You can set username and password directly, but I doesn't work when you use an account-hook, so probably the account-hook doesn't work. An account-hook consists of a regexp for the mailboxes, and those commands which should be executed if a mailbox matches the regexp. Since the commands (set imap_user, set imap_pass) are not executed, we can assume that ...
