Ok, in your ~/.muttrc or /etc/Muttrc or /usr/local/etc/Muttrc (for systemwide
set editor="vim -c 'set tw=78' -c ':0;/^Reply-To: '"
change the line if you have a set editor, or add it if don't...
That'll startup vim with wrapping at col 78 and position the cursor at
Reply-To:, which is the last line of the header.

All that is completely definable in /etc/vimrc, so a bit of experimentation to
see what colour combinations is all that is needed. ...can be tricky to find
out the "perfect" one the first time though.
