whilst in mutt press F1/help once and read to your hearts delight the
very thorough yet compact manual. It's *all* defined there though it
might take some getting used to to appreciate its thoroughness.
>From that manual:
When unset, mailboxes which contain no saved messages will be removed
when closed (the exception is ````$spoolfile'''' which is never
removed). If set, mailboxes are never removed.
Note: This only applies to mbox and MMDF folders, Mutt does not delete
MH and Maildir directories.
