This Content is from SuperUser. Question asked by Tryer
.bashrc is set thus:
MAIL=/var/spool/mail/Tryer && export MAIL
mutt commands work fine and display any new message received. However, on trying to delete a message in
mutt, I get an error that states:
Mailbox is read-only.
I tried to follow the steps specified in an old question along same lines available here.
The output is as follows:
:~$ ls -ld /var/mail drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 4096 Sep 18 21:59 /var/mail
The solution there seemed to suggest that the user
Tryer should be added to group
vmail. However, the above output does not indicate any
vmail group. It only specified the
root. It is not clear to me whether I should add user
