Great! NeoMutt is much better than Mutt, I really like it. It greatly 
improves my productivity to be able to focus on the text and only view 
images and/or attachments if I chose. I've also found NeoMutt very 
portable, and stable! I've given up using desktop mail programs and now 
use only neomutt (my top choice) or the webmail interface.

So thank you so much for your hard work, is what I am trying to say.
