Hi,

AutoMySQLBackup should be telling Mutt not to save any outbound messages. I found a 1.5GB "sent" file in "/root" which contains all of Mutts messages.

    A bit more on this:

    You should apply the -e "set nocopy" flag to fix this issue.

    "This variable controls whether or not copies of your outgoing messages will be saved for later references."

    In the context of being a backup script, the behaviour of saving sent messages is not needed.
