I have a gmail account but I rarely use it. I get all my mail in via
fetchmail and read it with mutt and then I want to reply to something
from mutt by just hitting reply. Copying from mutt into any other
email system is a pain and I shouldn't be doing silly things like
that. I need to do some work and get it setup correctly.
I meant I have used gmail's SMTP server to send from an email client on
a laptop before, the laptop connecting to the internet with different
internet connections depending on the country at the time. The from
address was not gmail's - I can't specifically remember now but I think
gmail may have added an extra header to indicate that it was sent via
gmail. No copying and pasting or anything. Download the mail from your
domain's mailbox, read it with whatever you want, reply and send it via
gmail's servers (from memory it was an authenticated, encrypted
connection to a non-standard SMTP port).
I didn't understand your suggestion at first as I didnt know one could use gmail for
this. I googled and have found this very easily.
"Set your POP client to route outbound mail to smtp.google.com with port 465 and SSL
enabled and use your Gmail login credentials. "

I'll try this at home tonight or when I get a chance.
This goes to show that making a post here can be so rewarding. Thanks Phil.
