It can be useful to categorise people into different groups, for the purposes of quickly limiting and tagging by that group in mail folders.

To store people/group information in a separate file, source it from your ~/.muttrc

# source list of people/groups source "~/.mutt/groups"

The groups file might look a bit like:

# friends group -group friends -addr Easter Bunny <eb@…> group -group friends -addr Snow White <sw@…>

# foes group -group foes -addr Dr Claw <dc@…> (..etc)

Then when running mutt, you can simply use eg:

T%f friends

To eg tag, all the email messages that are from anyone in your "friends" group.
