docs and samples
BTW, the Mutt FAQ (http://www.fefe.de/muttfaq/faq.html) is very useful to read *before* looking at Mutt itself. (we host Russian translation (http://linux.kiev.ua/materials/Mutt-FAQ.html)).
And when someone's in progress of hammering his (or even her) own config file to personal taste and habit samples of already existing configuration are available at dotfiles.com (http://dotfiles.com/index.php3?app_id=27). Worth looking at, must admit.
Good luck, and if you're tired with e-mail, a couple of days to get used to mutt and make it fit you will pay back quite quickly -- I'd estimate less than two weeks of accomodation time (being ex-Pine user).
mutt is the king of unix MUAs. I recommend reading the muttrc manpage immediately from top to bottom and crafting the perfect .muttrc file for your needs.
Talk about a robust, flexible and powerful email client! Happily using Mutt and loving it!
