 |Is anyone using Mutt (a curses based mail reader) on FreeBSD, in color_xterm
 |or rxvt, and getting it to display colour?
 |I've posted this query to the Mutt mailing list, and the consensus was that
 |I needed a termcap entry with colour support. Fair enough, but the suggested
 |solutions ('setenv TERM xterm-color', when $TERM is already 'xterm') don't

xterm-color Works for me.  Do a mutt -v and verify that the line:

#define HAVE_COLOR

is printed in the output.  If not, that's probably what's wrong.  Rebuild
with this option set.
