Problem with mutt in Ubuntu 12

I have just switched from CentOS to Ubuntu.

It seems that mutt is reading /etc/Muttrc after my own .muttrc instead 
of before. This causes some of my settings to be overridden with 
settings I don't want. 
Worse,  mutt will not save read messages in the file indicated by the 
mbox setting. It does save sent messages, however. 

I guess there is nothing to be  done about the first problem, but there 
should be some way  to get it to save read lmessages.
