Well, the program itself does report as neomutt, so it seems to be the packing
in OS that obfuscates this.

neomutt actually is quite different but appears similar. functions
are not the same. neomutt contains features no on mutt but those features
also can make scripts fail and other problems.

I'm using my mutt configuration since many years, largely unchanged. So it
seems to be backwards compatible in some way. That's what I meant.

in reality, mutt should be mutt and neomutt should be neomutt.

ACK. And/or do this via alternatives.


Well, there's not really much to discuss about it, you're just plain right ;^>
