I love Mutt and have been using it for years. A funny thing happened when I switched to startmail as my mail provider, I emailed their tech support and asked if they had any documentation on how to configure the .muttrc file, as I could not find any documentation for Mutt on their website. The tech responded that instructions for configuring Evolution via the command line were on their website. (I could find no such CLI Evolution instructions on the startmail website, but that is beside the point.) I wrote back and politely asked if she could send my ticket to someone with a bit more nix experience. She took the request well and forwarded my ticket on. The next day their tier 2 support contacted me and wrote, I quote, "We all use Mutt too. Here is how I have my file configured." (By we all, I am guessing he meant the tier 2 support folks.) See More
