Is there a handy way to handle multiple mail folders with mutt? In Pine, I
make them 'Incoming mail' folders  and then I can use the TAB key to
browse all folders for new messages.
 To do this, in the setup menu, check the "enable-incoming-folders"
option. I haven't found the place to add 'Incoming" folders in the setup
menu, but editing the .pinerc file is very easy. Just change the line
to something like
You don't need to add the file /var/spool/mail/<username> to this list, it
will be the first "incoming" folder automatically.
