The official Mutt channel is #mutt on (what is IRC?). If you have questions that cannot be answered by RTFM, join #mutt and ask there. If you like, stay some time to help others by answering some questions yourself. Or even stay permanently :-)
Use the above shown connection data to join with any IRC-client like irssi, XChat, Gaim or ChatZilla. If you're too lazy or limited in admin-power, try webchat instead. We collect some fortunes of MuttQuotes.

Channel Guidelines

REQUIRED: read BeforeYouAsk!!'''

If you don't, the help you get will not be as good (speed + quality) as it could be!

"technical": don't annoy bystanders.

  • Just ask your stuff, don't ask if we're "alive" nor "anyone using XYZ"! Stay mutt-related on topic and all will be fine.
  • Type "!keyword" to trigger some standard responses for your "keyword".
  • Don't flood the channel by pasting lots of lines (up to 4 lines is ok). If you have to paste a lot of lines:
  • Disable auto-away messages & nick-changes! Use the silent /away feature of your client manually, nothing else!
  • Be patient: don't repost toooooo often, once every 12h is ok, see BeforeYouAsk.

REQUIRED: read BeforeYouAsk!!'''

Introduce yourself with a #mutt service ticket number (#mst), which you choose in the range 0-999, to show that you've understood all of the above. ;-)

If you like, join MuttMaps.
