:) Without the lynx prefix, just how is mutt etc to

The problem here is the way you organize your mail.  I use pine and filter
(using procmail) all the e-mail from the list to an incoming folder,
completely different from my INBOX, so I do not need to keep all mail with
a certain string in a subject together in the same index, but in a
separate folder. I also never see the "lynx-dev" part in my index, so I
have more space to read the real subject, very handy in this list. Maybe
it would be a good idea to eliminate the "lynx-dev" part in the subject, I
suspect it is there for historical reasons, not because is really needed,
or is it?

I do not know if mutt has the ability to enable reading of more than one
incoming folder (I suspect it does), in case it does, I encourage you to
use it.
