I've just installed Mutt (excellent!) but when I use the arrow keys to scroll up and down through threads, there's a big delay, and Mutt takes a while to catch up. Does anyone have any ideas? (I do have header_cache and message_cache_dir enabled.)

I can vaguely remember having experienced a similar issue and resolving it by modifying the timeout and sleep_time options as follows:
set timeout = 60 set sleep_time = 0
I guess the latter might have been of greater importance. I'm using mutt from the [extra] repository.
Sorry for the late reply --- I guess I hadn't subscribed to the thread, so didn't realised you'd replied!
Thanks for the suggestions, but it doesn't seem to have worked. I haven't been using Mutt (because of this annoying scrolling), but seeing your reply prompted me to look again. And guess what I found --- it's related to the mail_check to variable! At the default of 5 seconds, I get slow scrolling. Set it to 60 seconds, and voila, I have fast scrolling! I don't know why it works, but it does, and I am glad = )
