mutt folders


Can mutt be configured to allow the same user to have multiple mail folders (where he can store mail messages)?

Thanks,
SS

If you don't have a ~/.muttrc file, you can copy it from /etc/mutt/Muttrc to your home directory. I edit my ~/.muttrc file to reflect:

set folder=~/mail
set record=~/mail/sent

This keeps my outgoing mail in the Mail directory located in my $HOME. Newly created folders will be located here also.
