Hello again Kark,
Well, the errors occur at the bottom of the mutt gui
and I suspect it it just an artifact of the gui.  It
does not have the leading /.  Also, I don't have a
muttrc or .muttrc file according to locate command. I
did find in /etc a Muttrc file which I probably copied
from the /usr/share/doc*mutt*/examples docs, or
whatever the path was and renamed it to muttrc. Read
it twice and found no referenc to path
/var/spool/mail/lchata. Other than the copy to /etc,
I've never configured mutt and there was no default
muttrc in the original install of mutt.
dpkg-reconifgure mutt also takes a long time to run
and has no output to select options.  Suspect it's a
bug in mutt or am I missing somethin?
