you could also do:
(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("mutt-cat-.*" . post-mode))

by putting it in a hook that is run when post-mode is run. normally, a major
mode will have such a hook, simply called <major-mode>-hook, i.e. in the case of
post-mode it should be post-mode-hook. so:
(add-hook 'post-mode-hook 'turn-on-flyspell)
should *probably* do it. (but check the documentation for flyspell-mode to find
out what the best way is to turn it on. i don't use it so i don't know...)

it is, it's just not a major mode but a minor mode.

you haven't described what you've tried to do to turn it on, so no-one can say
what you might have done wrong...
