Thanks Dan. I did look at those sources, specifiying looking for
something like =mu4e-headers-hook= but couldn't find one.

Do you have any idea about the more generic emacs question?
Specifically, how do I achieve the following:

(when (= MAJOR_MODE "mu4e-headers")
  (do this)
  (and do that))

Thanks.
