I don't think you really want to. Although mutt can be configured to use
a POP server as a folder, it's best that you don't do it. If it was an
IMAP one...that's different. Mutt rocks at that.
Also, mutt isn't an MTA. So you are going to have to install sendmail
locally, and set it to send mail to your upstream MTA, or the destination
But, if you want to, you can set your mailspool to be;
Thats the mutt-1.3 syntax - which has better POP-as-a-folder support.
