AFAIK in Stretch Mutt actually means Neomutt. There was a flamewar between the package maintainer and the Mutt guy a while ago about that. It wasn't pretty[1,2]. In Buster, Mutt means Mutt, and Neomutt means Neomutt. I suppose if you want to use "Vanilla" Mutt in Stretch you need to get it some other way.  https://jmtd.net/log/mutt_year_zero  https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=870635 --Francisco On Fri, 2019-05-03 at 03:56 +0000, Russell L.
