configure fetchmail separately from mutt, and setup mutt to look for 
incoming mail in the standard location: /var/spool/mail/<username> ,
and configure it to run periodically. I use fetchmailconf to do this,
but fetchmailconf does nasty things under sarge on my system, be warned
if you are using sarge (and maybe sid, not know, i'm to timid to try)

other ways may work as well or better, but my impression is that mutt is
supposed to be a simple mail reader, not a means of controling other 
aspects of the mail delivery chain.
