For my inbox, a Maildir called INBOX in ~/.folders (which one day I will
change to .mail, but anyway) here's what I have in .muttrc:

set folder=~/.folders           # where I keep my mailboxes
set spoolfile='+INBOX'  # where my new mail is located

The docs lie, press c (I think that's your binding isn't it?) and it'll pop
up the next box with new mail in it.  I -WISH- tab worked like that though!
