To browse, I think you should just be able to type c<tab> - except if
you've got a mailbox with new mail filled in you'll end up
tab-completing instead. To tab-complete you need to at least have the
server part typed - mutt can't tab-complete hostnames. Usually this is
simple since you've defined $folder to contain the hostname, so you can
just tab-complete using the '=' prefix (ie c=<tab>)

er, dunno - I'm not running courier ATM. mutt has SASL support, but
apparently there's something wrong in the current version, either in
mutt or the SASL package. Unfortunately I'm having problems with my
debugger using a locally-built mutt against the debian SASL library:

(gdb) b imap_auth_sasl 
Breakpoint 1 at 0x80a0b3c: file
/usr/devel/cvs/guug/mutt/imap/auth_sasl.c, line 36.
(gdb) r
Starting program: /home/brendan/build/mutt/./mutt 
Cannot access memory at address 0x40017de8

which is what I'm working on now...
