that should be the "recall" option, not "postpone". The latter is for
postponing more messages, the former for recalling them.

Or you might even set it to "no", which disables recalling postponed
messages from the 'm' (compose) function altogether. To manually
recall one, there's still the 'R' command.
Thanks to all that replied. Specifying recall=ask-yes in my ~/.muttrc
did the trick. I think what blinded me to the obvious solution is my
tendency to grep the fine manual (rather than read it through), and
mutt's use of such "non-standard" terms as "postpone" (instead of
"Save Draft", etc).
