I'd like to try to connect my
mutt email client to my Google account. However, this account is managed (G Suite) and we login via what looks like Active Directory. I'd like to connect
mutt to this account, but I suspect it is failing because of one of two things (or both):
- Login fails because I didn't sign in with Active Directory
- I've entered inaccurate information in my config file, due to the custom domain name our organization (G Suite) is using.
- My email is
- My password (from logging in via Active Directory) is
my configuration file looks like this:
# ~/.muttrc # ~~~~~~~~~ set from = "[email protected]" set realname = "Foo Barrington" set smtp_url = "smtps://[email protected]" set smtp_pass = "aBcD1234" set record = "" set imap_user = "[email protected]" set imap_pass = "aBcD1234" set folder = imaps://imap.gmail.com set spoolfile = +INBOX set record "+[Gmail]/Sent Mail" set postponed = "+[Gmail]/drafts"
My question is: is this possible? If so, what am I doing wrong?
I used the guide provided on the Mutt website. Like all good documentation, I cannot find it, but I will continue to look for it. Please do not hesitate to ask clarifying questions.
EDIT: ah darn, forgot password fields
