Re: [vox-tech] mutt mailing list support

hi rusty,

sure thing.  actually, i'm curious about other peoples' .muttrc files too,
so whoever wants to post theirs, go right ahead.  i know there are a couple
of people on the list who are also interested in making the move to mutt.

here's my file.  i've commented it extensively, since i tend to forget these
types of things.  hope you find it useful.
