Which will in all probability not help, but won't hurt either. To
*really* get to see them, you have to convince mutt that you understand

    setenv LC_CTYPE en_US

in csh syntax. The reasoning is that without setting LANG, LC_ALL or
LC_CTYPE at the minimum to something, it defaults to "C", which is 7
bits ASCII only, by definition.
Almost any valid setting will do because even en_US assumes the
ISO-8859-1 characterset.

Yes, it's different from most other software in this regard (which just
assumes that things are 8-bit clean and the fonts are chosen
