I set status_format in my .muttrc so that the name and subject appear on
the top line and then I use "ignore *" to ignore all the headers. Then
when I am going through my mail I just hit d when I am reading the
message and move on to the next message. Also shift+t is handy to hide
all the quoted text when I am reading messages with inline quoting. The
mutt manual is very comprehensive and there are *many* .muttrcs out
there to use as examples. Happy mutting.
