The problem is that mutt sucks, too.

If the default for a text-based MUA is not to just display text,
something's awry.

Not to mention the very outdated model of email it uses and the lack
of support for multiple email accounts.

Actually, I shouldn't say that. There's at least 3 different ways to
handle multiple email accounts. One using "folder hooks," "account
hooks," and "hooks"; one using macros; and one poor bastard using
multiple muttrc files and screen.
