mutt is to read your mail (MUA); you probably also have exim or exim4
(MTA) which processes incoming and outgoing mail. To collect your mail
you need to install fetchmail and configure .fetchmailrc:
set postmaster "postmaster"
set no spambounce
set properties ""
poll isp.popserver.net with proto POP3
user 'username' there with password 'passwd' is
'email@example.com' here options keep
to configure sending via your ISP do as root:
and select send email via smarthost and input smtp.server details.
FWIW as a complete novice on Linux/Debian I started with
mutt/exim/fetchmail and continue to use this configuration, two years
on. However, it is a steepish learning curve and you need to google
for: fetchmail exim mutt howto
to learn more.
