    11=== How can I access my POP/IMAP account(s)? ===
    22The easiest/ fastest way is to use URL syntax:
    3  pops://user@host/      (pop:// - no SSL)
    4  imaps://user@host/path (imap:// - no SSL)
     3 pops://user@example.com/      (pop:// - no SSL)
     4 imaps://user@example.com/path (imap:// - no SSL)
    55You can specify them where ever you have to provide a folder name (like "change-folder" or hooks).
    66This includes even your "inbox", see MuttGuide/Folders.
    77This treats them as regular local folders, i.e. for POP you can delete
    8 single msgs on the server, i.e. it doesn't just POP them off "all or none".

    1414=== How can I configure mutt with IMAP so that I can read a message without large attachments (eg pdf, doc, ppt) being downloaded? ===
    15 When I access my IMAP server from my android using K-9 Mail, I can read a message body without attachments being downloaded. In mutt, I can't figure out how to get this behaviour. Instead, my mutt is downloading all the attachments the moment I select a message, which is often a waste of time and bandwidth.

    1818=== When I use a ssh-tunnel-to-IMAP to my imap server I get error messages ... ===

    3939=== How can I save typing long IMAP-pathnames? ===
    40 If you have just 1 IMAP account and/or don't need the
    41 <tt>$folder</tt> variable to access local folders or use
    42 <tt>"~"</tt> to do so, then you can store the common path of a
    43 single IMAP-server in <tt>$folder</tt> and use <tt>"+" or "="</tt>
     40If you have just one IMAP account and / or don't need the
     41'''$folder''' variable to access local folders or use
     42'''"~"''' to do so, then you can store the common path of a
     43single IMAP-server in '''$folder''' and use '''"+" or "="'''
    4444as a shortcut (see MuttGuide/Folders).
    4545
    46 You can specify <tt>mailboxes</tt> to have more than 1 listed
     46You can specify '''mailboxes'''to have more than 1 listed
    4747in the mailbox folder-browse mode (change folder, hit '?' twice to
    4848find the key to toggle "mailboxes view"). You can use
    49 <tt>$folder</tt> to save typing when specifying them (note
    50 to reset it at the end to a sane local value):<pre>
     49'''$folder''' to save typing when specifying them (note
     50to reset it at the end to a sane local value):
     51{{{
    5152 set folder=imap://AAA.tld
    5253 mailboxes +folder1 +folder2 ...
     
    5556 ...
    5657 set folder=~/Mail
    57 </pre>
     58}}}
    5859Or use macros in the different menus and contexts (changing or
    5960saving folders), especially if you have more than 1.
    6061
    61 With hooks you can change "<tt>$folder</tt>" dynamically, get creative.
     62With hooks you can change "'''$folder'''" dynamically, get creative.
    6263
    6364=== How can I list/ browse remote IMAP-folders? ===
    6465As with local folders, you can use TAB to enter folder-browse mode
    65 for the <tt>change-folder</tt> command. Just specify the base
     66for the '''change-folder''' command. Just specify the base
    6667directory and let mutt TAB-expand/-browse it for you (MuttGuide/Folders).
    6768
    6869You can also define all your IMAP folders as "mailboxes" and then
    69 enter "mailboxes" view. For this set "<tt>imap_list_subscribed</tt>"
    70 and "<tt>imap_check_subscribed</tt>" as desired, then go and
     70enter "mailboxes" view. For this set "'''imap_list_subscribed'''"
     71and "'''imap_check_subscribed'''" as desired, then go and
    7172actually subscribe your desired folders.
    7273Then see /Action about "mailboxes" view.
     
    7576Because you probably have forgotten to change one of the settings
    7677for MuttGuide/Folders, or you might have specified
    77 <tt>mailboxes</tt> pointing to local folders.
     78'''mailboxes''' pointing to local folders.

    7980=== I keep getting disconnected when I leave mutt alone for a few minutes ===

    8687Unfortunately some routers will drop you after as little as one
    87 minute. You can try adjusting <tt>$timeout</tt> (reducing this polls
    88 the current mailbox more often), <tt>$mail_check</tt> (this controls
     88minute. You can try adjusting '''$timeout''' (reducing this polls
     89the current mailbox more often), '''$mail_check''' (this controls
    8990how frequently ''other'' mailboxes are polled), or
    90 <tt>$imap_keepalive</tt> (which controls how often keepalive
     91'''$imap_keepalive''' (which controls how often keepalive
    9192messages are sent in non-interactive contexts, eg while composing
    9293email messages). Lower these until your router stops disconnecting
     
    9697Because it's not in the system-wide certificate database. You
    9798probably can't do anything about that, but you can set
    98 <tt>$certificate_file</tt> to the path of a file in which to store
     99'''$certificate_file''' to the path of a file in which to store
    99100these unknown certificates. If this is set, you'll see a new option
    100101to save certificates permanently the next time you connect. As long
