MUTT reconfigure (no ~/.muttrc)

Hey All,
IN an effort to learn the great email client MUTT, I am having trouble locating my .muttrc file. I have this file :


which contains some general info, and a sample.muttrc file
I can run mutt, but for some reason no .muttrc file??

I am looking to reconfigure my options, set POP account, username, password, and other options which I can read about once i located this file.

Any ideas??

THanks !!

hi there,
i don't FC3 but some other distros do not have a muttrc default.
you should go to or some dotfiles page to check some info.
but, do you set your pop info in the muttrc file? why not fetchmail? i think it is easier.
there are a lot of howto available in the net..
