You need to change your mutt configuration slightly. Mutt decides what
fields to display with the index_format variable.
You'll want to change the author display from %v (first name of the
author, or the recipient if the message is from you) to %t (`to:' field
Mutt will decide whether the email is from you or not based on the
value of alternates variable.
