Mutt Tips

* ~f brucewayne :From: matches "brucewayne"
* ~s party : messages with subject containing "party"
* ~d <2w : messages less than two weeks old. Also: year, month, week, day.
* ~t clarkk : To: matches clarkk (useful for sent-mail folders)
* ~O : old (i.e. unread but not new) messages.
~N is new unread.
~U is unread, i.e. both together.
* ~p : messages addressed to you (useful if your inbox is bombarded with mailing list or system report activity).
* ~p ~U : for messages to you you haven't read yet.
