I'm sure that would be it, if I could select the deleted messages.
When I use the up/down arrow to navigate, the cursor skips 'D' messages.
Thus I can't undelete them. This reminds my of elm.

And, what is the version without all the questions? I put 'set
fast_reply' in .muttrc but it didn't get rid of the questions.

That's good, because I haven't used Windows since 1994 and I'd be kind

See, that's what I'm talking about. Everybody says how great mutt is
but I can't even start using it without reading a long manual. I can
change to my imap mailboxes using 'c', but I can't figure out how to put
them in .muttrc so that they get checked at startup. It isn't the
'mailboxes' directove, either, because I already tried that.
When I installed Slackware Linux the very first time, I only had to read
a small HOWTO and I was off to the races. Mutt presents a bigger hurdle
than installing that OS, which sucks a little bit.
