I am using Mutt as my e-mail client of choice, and I have done that ever since I started using Unix. I have for many months been annoyed by the very ugly theme that I created back when I was around 13, but I have never bothered spending a few minutes on making something shiny that did not look too ugly.
Highly inspired by Ciaran’s Vim theme, Inkpot, I decided to create a theme for Mutt.
