Mutt colors changed...weird


#1

Hi all. I’m still setting up my account, and new dreamhost email address, and hence only periodically check it, but today I did, with mutt, and found that the color settings made it very difficult to read.

Apparently I can change mutt’s colors in the muttrc file, but what’s weird is a) I never changed the colors there and the text used to be readable; b) there is no reference, as far as I can tell, to colors in my muttrc.

Any idea how this could happen? Thanks.

Probably a change to the default Muttrc (/etc/Muttrc). I think our colors are pretty much the same as the Debian default. Feel free to disable color or change the colors from the default (or to invoke mutt so that /etc/Muttrc is ignored).
