This probably should be asked in a mutt list but anyway I'll try here. If I type 'c' on mutt it suggest by default a folder where there's new e-mail. If I press enter it opens that folder and if I type c again it suggest another folder where there's new e-mail. This way it goes through all the folders where there's new e-mail.

I quite like this behavior, the only thing I'd like to change is to ignore some folders (Trash for example). Is there anyway of doing this, short of marking all mail in the trash as read?

I don't think I've ever had 'Trash' (or anything other than 'INBOX') offered via 'change-folder', I expect this is because I define 'mailboxes' to be the INBOX's of the various locations mail is delivered. You should be able to do the same and so (hopefully) effect a similar behavior, so something like:

~/.muttrc:
mailboxes = +foo-local/INBOX +baa-local/INBOX +bing-local/INBOX +bong-local/INBOX

send-hook "(~t @)" 'set record="+Sent"'
folder-hook ~/mail/foo-local/INBOX 'set folder="~/mail/foo-local"'
folder-hook ~/mail/baa-local/INBOX 'set folder="~/mail/baa-local"'
folder-hook ~/mail/bing-local/INBOX 'set folder="~/mail/bing-local"'
folder-hook ~/mail/bong-local/INBOX 'set folder="~/mail/bong-local"'
folder-hook . 'set postponed="+Drafts"'

HTH & best ... khay

Thanks! indeed that was the culprit, I generate a file muttrc.mailboxes dinamically and the script was not filtering Trash correctly.
