I've never used it, but looking at the documentation (http://elmo.sourceforge.net/documentation.html) it appears the config file is probably at "/home/dsl/.elmorc".

Open a root terminal and do "nano /home/dsl/.elmorc", then follow the "How to run elmo?" instructions in the docs. In case you don't know nano that well, press Ctrl-X when you're finished.

Thank you, CNK!

The way to configure .elmorc is, for example:

set mailbox {
  name: 'mail'
  root: ~/elmo_mail
  start: inbox
  drafts: drafts
  trash: trash
  sent: sent
  outbox: outbox
  spam: spam
  protect: no

set smtp_acc {
  name: name@gmail.com
  server: smtp.gmail.com
  my_name: 'jcdq'
  email: name@gmail.com
  port: 465
  username: name@gmail.com
  password: mypasswd
  ssl: yes

set pop_acc {
  name: name@gmail.com
  server: pop.gmail.com
  username: name@gmail.com
  password: mypasswd
  port: 995
  count_max: 500
  ssl: yes

set pop_info_dir ~/elmo_mail/.pop

set bayes_file ~/mail/.bayes_file
set addressbook ~/elmo_mail/.addressbook
set sigfile ~/elmo_mail/signature
set editor 'nano %f'
set charset iso-8859-1
translate utf-8 iso-8859-1

#theme if you have themes in the ~/elmo_mail/.themes dir
#include ~/elmo_mail/.themes/<theme name here>

set indent_string '> '
set sig_dashes off
#set welcome_msg no
set relative_names on

#set line_format '%?%$%# %D %016f (%-06S)  '
#set sent_format '%?%$  %D %016t (%-06S)  '
#set abook_format '%s %020n %e'
#set win_fetch {
#   fetch_fmt: '%?%$  %D %016f (%-06S)  %s'
#set win_help {
#   help_fmt: '%012k %030f %d'
#set win_boxes {
#   box_fmt: ' %010n (%u/%t)'
#set win_attach {
#   attach_fmt: '%020f (%-06s) [%t%C%E]'
#set win_sender {
#   sender_fmt: '%020f (%-06s) [%t%C%E]'

key mail r sender_open_reply
key mail f sender_open_fwd
key mail R sender_open_reply_all

hook folder_toggle_flag folder_bar_next
hook fetch_del_mail fetch_next
hook fetch_get_mail fetch_next
hook mybox_create_box box_selection_re_read
hook sender_go mailreader_close

#hook sender_go smtp_flush_outbox

hook abook_hit abook_next


Thank you!
DSL is my favourite distro!
