I have been having a problem with Mutt lately on all version of Ubuntu I have tried it on. It seems that whenever my ISP' IP changes or it also happens on my laptop when I'm on Mobile internet, Mutt just freezes up, stops responding completely. I have to
CTRL+z out of it then
killall -9 mutt to get out completely and restart.
It's not such a big deal on my main PC since IP only changes once a day, but it's really frustrating on my laptop when on Mobile internet to have to constantly do that to shutdown a non-responsive Mutt or Quit it each time I'm done reading email.
Any idea why it does this? Is there a way to set response time to like 5 seconds or something that will fix this as a timeout? Or is it something else altogether?
