Nope. I tried it, but it will not change the header. I previously tried
the -F option, which specifies a different .muttrc file, in which I 
customized the header. It -did- read the .muttrc file, as it did customize
some other options I tried. No-go there either, for what reason I don't know.
There is nothing logged to maillog. I will try some of the other options 
that have been suggested now.

Thanks for the suggestion -
