With mutt you generally want to use mboxes instead of maildirs if 
possible because it means you can decode-copy (esc-C) an email to a 
nice, single file in your homedir with just that email in it. If mutt's 
mbox_type is set to maildir then when you decode-copy an email mutt will 
instead write an annoying set of maildir directories with the single 
email buried in there somewhere. But since offlineimap supports maildir 
and not mbox if you're using mutt with offlineimap you will have 
mbox_type set to maildir.

Anyone know a way around this, to get mutt to decode-copy to mbox while 
using maildir otherwise?
