I believe that local [[openvpn]] article was describing secure environment as a mere /root/ folder, since no one can access it besides local root(or whoever is authorized as such). Another far more concrete, yet comparatively more resource hungry approach, would be to call some kind of a chroot jail and perform necessary operations in it. This however, for an apparent reason, would not be fitting for all cases, such as a VPS, where space and resources are already fairly limited -- [[User:Pineman13|Pineman13]] ([[User talk:Pineman13|talk]]) 21:06, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

Maildir

set folder=$HOME/mail

Does the folder need a trailing slash? like

set folder=$HOME/mail/

Deleted section in Display recipient instead of sender in "Sent" folder view

This section was originally under `Display recipient instead of sender in "Sent" folder view`

I removed it because there's a much simpler way, but this might be useful for some edge cases, so feel free to put it back (with a caveat that it's sub-optimal). The deleted section follows.

Old content

The "columns" of the index can be configured through the index_format variable. Its syntax is documented in the muttrc man page. The values of our concern are %t (recipient) and %F (sender).

To change the columns according to the current folder, we need to use a hook:

muttrc
folder-hook   .*[sS]ent.* 'set index_format="%2C | %Z [%d] %-30.30t (%-4.4c) %?M?<%M> ?%s"'
folder-hook ! .*[sS]ent.* 'set index_format="%2C | %Z [%d] %-30.30F (%-4.4c) %?M?<%M> ?%s"'

The exclamation mark means everything that does not match the following regex. Of course you can change the index_format following your taste, and the regular expression if the folder does not have Sent nor sent in its name.

Let us centralize the settings, it will simplify future tweaking.

muttrc
set my_index_format_pre='set index_format="%2C | %Z [%d] %-30.30'
set my_index_format_post=' (%-4.4c) %?M?<%M> ?%s"'

folder-hook .*[sS]ent.* "$my_index_format_pre"t"$my_index_format_post"
folder-hook ! .*[sS]ent.* "$my_index_format_pre"F"$my_index_format_post"

Neomutt

As it stands neomutt is still a drop-in replacement for mutt, apart from the changed names and paths (mutt -> neomutt). However, as the projects continue to diverge, this may change and require a separate article (Neovim is similar). -- Alad (talk) 07:14, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

Current content is too short for a dedicate page. So I think we can just leave it here for now. If it become longer latter, than move it to its own page. --Fengchao (talk) 10:03, 2 July 2018 (UTC)
