mutt, links and irssi

For mutt, there's a configuration file called .muttrc and mutt does not 
roll you a default .muttrc file when you first start it up either.  There 
is an examples directory /usr/share/mutt/examples/ I think with some 
pre-packaged configuration files in it you can copy into your home 
directory then edit to your heart's content.  Only thing is, you need to 
edit that new .muttrc file correctly.  You can read comments in the file 
those lines that start with # and in /usr/share/mutt/ there should even be 
a manual.  It's possible to get mutt set up but takes a bit more work than 
pine or alpine.
