I am halfway through integrating mutt support into org-mairix.  The
latest version is attached and has the above cosmetic tweak applied.
I do not use gnus so I would be grateful if Georg or someone else
could test it to make sure I didn't break anything w.r.t. gnus.
Georg, feel free to upload it to emacswiki.org if it meets with your

Please note that it does not yet support automatic insertion of links
to messages marked externally by a helper invoked from within mutt.  I
have code which does that, but it's a simple hack using Perl which
lacks full plist-based integration, so I am waiting for advice in how
to resolve the issues described here:


before I can make a fully-functional release.

There are other issues with the code I would welcome feedback on.  For
instance, we need to define and document the syntax of the
mairix:... link, and I think it should support more flexibility than
it currently does, e.g.

  - state within the link (rather than globally via a custom variable)
    whether to do a threaded search or not,

  - search by arbitrary mairix expressions, not just message ids, and

  - per-link support for other mairix arguments such as -f <rcfile> for
    allowing multiple concurrent mairix setups.  I personally need
    this since I keep my work and personal mail archives (and mairix
    indices) completely separate.
