TMUX, mutt, and Vim Colors

Oct 14, 2013 Gethugothemes

Just some notes on setting up mutt in tmux and using vim for the default editor.

I wanted to get a clear background in mutt without the background text highlighted.

In order to make that happen, I started mutt with an alias in ~/.bashrc:

alias mutt='TERM=vt100 mutt'
...but then using vim as the default mutt editor wouldn't edit in color.

So in ~/.vimrc I have this, and it works like I expect:

set term=xterm-256color
So now it looks like so (sorry it's chopped to protect the innocent):
