Public bug reported:

I tried to install MUTT from Software Centre. The installation procedure
opened a messagebox which asked how I wanted to configure POSTFIX but
the box was dead (possibly my ignorance was at fault). I could not TAB
through the options nor could I TAB to the OK option. I am using Ubunto
13.10, downloaded from your website (I have no wat to know if the
website forwarded the request to a mirror)
