Inside mutt, no. But if you invoke mutt via a shell script you could cd into
a mail folder and then start mutt. If you run mutt once for a single folder
that would work ok (I do it this way). However, most people start mutt and
switch from folder to folder within it, and once inside mutt you can't change
But I think we both misunderstand his request.
