Mutt Configuration for Yahoo! (Working sol -)

First configure the directory as so--

Code:
mkdir -p ~/.mutt/cache/headers
mkdir ~/.mutt/cache/bodies
touch ~/.mutt/certificates

Then create the config file --

Code:
touch ~/.mutt/muttrc

Now, edit the file
sudo nano ~/.mutt/muttrc

Thanks to iandexter/github for the script:-
Code:
# Gmail settings
set imap_user = "username@yahoo.com"
set imap_pass = "password"
set smtp_url = "smtp://username@smtp.mail.yahoo.com:465/"
set smtp_pass = "password"
set from = "username@yahoo.com"
set realname = "Your real name"
set folder = "imaps://imap.mail.yahoo.com:993"
set spoolfile = "+INBOX"
set postponed="+[Gmail]/Drafts"
set header_cache=~/.mutt/cache/headers
set message_cachedir=~/.mutt/cache/bodies
set certificate_file=~/.mutt/certificates
set move = no
set sort = 'threads'
set sort_aux = 'last-date-received'
set imap_check_subscribed

# Some tweaks
set imap_keepalive = 300
set mail_check = 90
set timeout = 15
set charset = iso-8859-1

~Thanks
