I actually find it useful, but to each his own... There are two ways of
doing it: one is on a program-by-program basis, and the other is modifying
your terminal settings.
In Vim, you can turn it off by manipulating the terminfo entries (the
exact recipe can be obtained by typing ":help 'restorescreen'" in vim).
I have no idea how to do this in mutt, but others may chime in.
Alternatively, you can edit your terminfo database -- see "man terminfo"
