I would love to be able to use Heirloom mailx with Opera. Could you give me step by step procedure you used to configure Opera to use mutt. I tried all sorts of things with Heirloom mailx and BSD mail and it doesn't work.

Just filling in /usr/bin/mailx with "Open in terminal" checked works without problems ...

In operaprefs.ini

Code:
[Trusted Protocols]
mailto="0,1,"/usr/bin/mailx %s"

[Mail]
Webmail Service=0
External Application="/usr/bin/mailx %s"
Handler=2
And in [User Perfs]:
Run Email In Terminal=1

(Asked Admin to move these posts to a new thread btw.)

Just as a follow up. I tried to configure Opera to use Heirloom mailx on OpenBSD 4.8 where Opera 10.00 runs under Linux emulation.

There are two problems:

1. %s or %u is not converted into email address.
2. xterm hangs after e-mail is sent and must be killed with
Code:
pgrep xterm|xargs kill -9

Yes, xterm hangs, I just use the close button in my WM. I also have the same with viweing the source in xterm/Vim

I'll look at the %s when I get home.
