Here's the information we've gathered so far, just so it's sitting with the ticket.

Note that pre-Gutsy there was only an /etc/Muttrc; Gutsy and later have /etc/Muttrc.d

It sounds like the bare-minimum configuration we need here is just to add the following:

set spoolfile="imap://$USER@`hesinfo $USER pobox | awk '{print $2}'`"

However, the sipb locker mutt sets a bunch more options (/mit/sipb/etc/Muttrc-1.5.12). Stripping out comments and blanks, we're left with:

ignore "from " received content- mime-version status x-status message-id
ignore sender references return-path lines
macro index \eb "<search>~b " "search in message bodies"
macro index,pager \cb "<pipe-message>urlview<Enter>" "call urlview to extract URLs out of a message"
macro generic,pager <F1> "<shell-escape>less /mit/sipb/arch/sun4x_510/lib/mutt-1.5.12/doc/mutt/manual.txt<Enter>" "show Mutt documentation"
macro index,pager y "<change-folder>?<toggle-mailboxes>" "show incoming mailboxes list"
bind browser y exit

set record=""
set sort=threads
set spoolfile="imap://$USER@`hesinfo $USER pobox | awk '{print $2}'`"
set use_domain=no
spam "X-Spam-Score:.(.*)" "%1"

I don't really know what all of these mean. Some of them look like they make sense, e.g. the X-Spam-Score settings. Some of them look like what amounts to personal preference.

I'm a mutt user and can take this ticket.

Some of the lines there are things you really want in order to use mutt. (I'm imagining mutt with no "ignore received" -- ouch.) Thankfully there's no need to go pursue an upstream bug -- they're already in /etc/Muttrc.

I'll look at the rest and identify what this Muttrc adds and which of that we want.

  • Keywords proposed added
  • Component set to default

debathena-mutt-config is in -proposed, as is a new version of debathena-clients that recommends it.

I'm not really concerned about the fact that this might not work on Gutsy, because the worst case scenario is that we fail to change the current behavior.

As this is a "new feature", I'm going to keep it in -proposed for a week. I'll plan to move it to production on April 9, if there are no objections.
