    23=== How do I set mutt to allow editing of the From: header during composition? ===
     
    3738=== I have several different roles (From:-addresses), how to manage them? ===

    39 One method is to use different mutt config files by calling mutt using the <tt>-F</tt> flag to tell it what profile to use. A convenient way to do it is to create, say, a directory <tt>~/.mutt</tt> to hold all profile configuration.
     40One method is to use different mutt config files by calling mutt using the '''-F''' flag to tell it what profile to use. A convenient way to do it is to create, say, a directory '''~/.mutt''' to hold all profile configuration.

    41 For example, for a profile p1 you can create a file <tt>~/.mutt/p1</tt>, and put all the profile specific set lines in it:

    52 It is convenient to indicate the profile with specific colours and statusbars (like <tt>pager_format</tt> in this example).

    54 All the other settings can be put in another file and then read into each profile using <tt>source</tt>. Be careful to remove all account-specific information from that file.

    58 To avoid the tediousness of having to type <tt>mutt -F ~/.mutt/p1</tt> every time, add shell aliases like the one below:

    9899=== I set $reverse_name, but it's not working! ===
    99100The original message (the one to which you are replying) must have
    100 been sent to an address which matches <tt>$alternates</tt>
    101 (v<=1.5.5) or <tt>alternates</tt>-cmd (v>=1.5.6).

     102(v<=1.5.5) or '''alternates'''-cmd (v>=1.5.6).
    102103Also there must be no '''my_hdr From:''' active:
    103104It would overrule '''$reverse_name'''.
     
    107108How can I add something like "Low, Normal, Medium, High" priority to a mail right before sending?
    108109
    109 This is usually done through a <tt>Priority:</tt> header, altough it is not a standard header. It is up to the [[MailConcept|MUA]] whether it supports it or not. If the receiving MUA does not support it, it will not be displayed to the receiver. Mutt allows you to setup <tt>macros</tt>, various -hooks, and <tt>my_hdr</tt> to add the header to a message.
