    I can't send backups to mail under Linux Mint. And I have no idea what is wrong. At first was clear, no mutt installed. I installed mutt...now automysqlbackup runs, ends without error or strange message, but no email arrives to destination (gmail).
    I'm very confused, as I'm pretty new in linux environments.
    Should I make some special setup, or is there a log I can provide? Btw, if I enable CONFIG_mailcontent='stdout', the console log looks fine, no errors in backup process. I assume is only mail-related issue, but I have no clue from which end to start.
    Help would be most appreciated.
    Thanks.

    have you manually checked whether mutt is working properly with some data from console ? also giving it as 'quite' instead of stdout. If you still have problem , do check mail -s "test" uremailid in console.
