Last time I shared valuable advice I got a sixpack of Arrogant Bastard
Ale shipped to me....  Damned good brew.  Appropriately named.

The stuff below shows how to set the default folder index colors
("folder-hook ." matches all folders), then a cyan highlight of linux or
unix related messages in one folder, and a yellow/black highlight in
*all* folders.

    # Some index stuff.
    # Highlight HTML-encoded messages:
    folder-hook .   "uncolor index *"
    folder-hook sas-l "color index cyan  black '~b linux | ~b unix"
    folder-hook .   "color index yellow black '~b \"^Content-Type: text/html\" | ~h \"^Content-Type: text/html\" "
