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:

 6.3.193.  save_empty

  Type: boolean
  Default: yes

  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.
