Add the following line to your .muttrc :

set pgp_verify_sig=no

Alternatively you can install GPG and the necessary public keys so
that you can actually verify the signature.  I have yet to do this.

(This has nothing to do with mutt, BTW)
In your .vimrc include the following line:

set esckeys

No -- mutt is email only.  "Do one thing and do it well"
