     18=== Why doesn't the background highlight color show behind white space? ===
    1919This seems to be caused by an interaction between the slang library and the "reverse" video attribute that Mutt uses
    2020by default for certain '''mono/color''' objects, when Mutt is running on a terminal that supports color.  (Mutt starts out configured to the "reverse" setting for these objects on all terminals, but will not allow the user to run a "mono" command to explicitly configure that setting [on any '''mono/color''' object] after startup if the session is running on a color terminal.)

    2222Some possible ways to get the background highlight color to apply to white space as expected:
    23 * build against ncurses instead of slang.<br>&nbsp;<br>
    24 * define TERM to be a mono-only terminal when running Mutt, e.g.<br>'''&nbsp;    TERM=vt100 mutt'''<br>(making sure that neither TERMCAP nor COLORTERM are defined).<br>&nbsp;<br>
    25 * use '''color''' commands in the Mutt initialization file to replace the "reverse" attribute with color attributes for each of the affected objects.<br>&nbsp;<br>For example, the following would fairly closely mimic the default value of "reverse" on a standard black-on-white xterm<pre>   color status    white black

    2935* Try running mutt within screen, even if you don't need screen's capabilities.

    4551=== Can I highlight certain email addresses in my tree? ===
    4652Yes. Please consult the "Using Colors" & "Patterns" sections of "manual.txt". Example:
    47  color index cyan default '~f her@herplace.com'
     53 color index cyan default '~f user@example.com'
