That way you don't have to worry about Evolution squirrelling away the
mail somewhere it wants, but leaves it on the IMAP server. It also makes
life a lot easier if you want to play with different e-mail clients --
you can use umpteen different mail clients, and the e-mail will always
be in the right place.

Not that setting up IMAP was that easy -- Dovecot wouldn't see my
Maildir folders. Eventually I worked out that this was because it
insisted on having *hidden* folders -- all folder names had to start
with a dot. Otherwise I could have just left IMAP for graphical clients,
and used mutt's built-in Maildir support.

Incidentally, flagging is possible in mutt -- I use it all the time, if
I see a list e-mail I might want to have a go at answering, but don't
feel like right now, or if I want to see if someone who knows more about
that topic will comment.

I believe it's F in the default key-binding.

Hope this helps,
