    Unhappy [SOLVED] Mutt not handling mailto: URLs

    Ubuntu Lucid amd64, mutt-1.5.20-7ubuntu1

    I'm pretty sure the following used to work:

    Code:
    $ mutt mailto:dumbemail@mailinator.com?subject="Whoop dee doo"
    Now mutt exits silently with status=1. Tried setting EDITOR/VISUAL, no difference.

    Any ideas?

    Edit: I had tempdir pointed at a non-existent directory in my .muttrc. Still annoying that there was no error message, but at least things are working again.
