I would suggest to Enhances: mutt, in addition to suggesting it.  Also
the homepage field is supposedly supposed to be indented with an extra

+       -$(MAKE) distclean
is evil, see Branden's bug against lintian.

nmzmail-0.1.3.orig/config.{sub,guess} are interesting, they seem to be
introduced entirely by your .diff; does upstream really not ship with
them?  Aren't they required?  You might consider removing them in
'clean' and copying them from /u/s/autotools-dev/ on configure, and of
course b-dep on autotools-dev.
