I looked into using mutt as an IMAP client a while back and did it for 
a while.  I didn't like how it slowed it down, but it did work.

A quick Google search for "mutt + IMAP" turned up a ton of sites that 
have information on the topic.  I wouldn't presume to try to help since 
it was a couple of years ago that I did it, and I'm guessing that 
mutt's IMAP support has probably gotten better and could have changed 
in how you configure it, but it appears there's plenty of documentation 
on the topic out there!  :-)
