My muttrc

Ankur asked me to put out a blog post describing my mutt setup since I had been using mutt for a while now. Most of my muttrc is borrowed from various resources on the internet, so what I’ll do here is dump my muttrc so that anyone interested can try out snippets and options they haven’t seen before. It has a couple of unique quirks like ldap lookups and adding zimbra invites from emails. I haven’t written those either; I got them from a couple of colleagues at work.

So here goes:

set abort_nosubject=ask-yes
set abort_unmodified=ask-yes
set copy=yes
set delete=yes
#set forward_edit=yes
set include=yes

set timeout=10 set mail_check=5 set sort=threads set sort_aux=date set sort_re set mark_old=no unset wait_key
