Re: "vtprint" doesn't work with Mutt when inside Screen

I am not familiar with vtprint, but these sorts of problems sound like typical environment variable issues.  If your vtprint environment gets set up in your .profile/.login or equivalent (you don't state what shell you use), but is not exported, then this can happen.  From a quick Google search it appears vtprint relies on a $VTPRINT environment variable for its default options.  Make sure this variable is exported before you launch screen, or is defined in your .bashrc/.cshrc or equivalent.

I use PuTTY to login to a shell account for reading/sending mail.
>From the shell without running Screen, I can print from Mutt
using "vtprint" (prints out on printer attached to local terminal).

When I evoke Mutt from a Screen session, nothing is sent to the
printer, even though I get a message on the display that vtprint
successfully printed a page.  Is there something I've overlooked
that would have Screen send the printer output to the terminal?
