IMAP support is AT LEAST in mutt-devel and probably in mutt as well, and
has been since the 1.3 days (2003 or so).  As for SMTP support, that
appeared around 1.5.17 I think (about a year ago); you might have to use
mutt-devel for it.  That said, I find mutt-devel to be as stable as I
could hope for and never seem to have any problems with it, unlike some
devel packages that can be flaky.  I think if you type mutt -v at the
prompt, it will show you which options were compiled in.
