I'm no mutt expert, but I keep my configs here for public copying/use:
Obviously you should not just copy my config in wholesale or things
will break badly. ;-) But you can look through it for ideas. If you
don't know what a particular command means, look at the mutt docs in
/usr/share/doc/mutt-* on your machine, or GIYF. Hope this is helpful
