I don't see any "configurations designed for sighted users" in 
Thunderbird, and I can have a brand new installation of Thunderbird up 
and running in about a minute, even without copying configuration files. 
The very first time I set up Thunderbird, and even Evolution, it took me 
3 minutes to set up two email accounts and start reading my mail, and I 
could even click links in a message using tab and other forms of 
navigation that I'm used to in browsers. On the other hand, Mutt took me 
two weeks of reading and writing and editing and I still couldn't get it 
to give me my IMAP mail. Granted this was more than 10 years ago, but I 
don't see that things have changed much in that time. I still wouldn't 
recommend Mutt to anyone other than those who feel like writing the 
source code for their own email program is a walk in the park.
