Thanks for that tidbit (yes, I'm revisiting the docs).  The only
remaining "issue" is that locally generated cron mail doesn't have a
date and time (my MTA is the very simple esmtp package) which puts it
at the top of my Inbox.  Not really a problem now that I'm aware of it.
In the mbox format they were appended at the bottom of the file and
Mutt able to determine the date/time of themessage and sort it
