mutt mysteries


I have a couple probably simple questions regarding my mutt setup that some of you may be able to quickly answer:

disclaimer: I DID read the manual

1. /var/spool/mbox: Permission denied (errno = 13)

I get this when I exit. mbox exists in this location with 660 access privlages. .muttrc has
set folder=/var/spool/mail
set mbox=+mbox
What's wrong?

2. cannot get list of URLs from my emails
As specified in the manual, .muttrc has:
macro index \cb |urlview\n
macro index \cb |urlview\n

if this is working , do I just use v to view the list of URLs? And yes, urlview is installed on my system.

3. HTML email/Attachments
I set up my .mailcap to view html emails as

text/html; lynx -dump %s; copiousoutput

I still see all the html tags and it is a mess. Using the default mutt pager is what I want. Another oddity is setting mailcap=yes in .muttrc gives an error...
