It's always worked out-of-the-box for me, on many installations,
on several Linux distributions.  In fact, it's been so out-of-the-box
that I've been running for years without a .muttrc.

The only things it has ever failed to do out-of-the-box for me are
 * identify which mailing lists I've subscribed to (so I can use L for rep,y-to-list), and
 *  figuring out the proper From: address for outgoing mail (I use escape-F to fill in my from address.  (actually, this allows me to choose pseudonyms easily.)
