I've updated the version of mutt to 1.2.5i-6.  This release fixes the "plusses
in the pager" problem when viewing received email.  Therefore, as of this
release, email reading, sending, and sending binary attachments are known to
work regardless of textmode/binmode concerns.  Saving receivied binary
attachments is known to still be broken on textmode mounts, but does work if
you're running strictly binary mounts.

Linked against the latest libncurses6 and cygwin1.dll (1.3.6-6).

Once you update, be sure to see the /usr/doc/Cygwin/mutt-1.2.5i-6.README and the
HTML docs in /usr/doc/mutt-1.2.5i/html for more information.

Please send any Cygwin-specific Mutt questions or bug reports (e.g., "Mutt's
acting crazy and I'm pretty sure it's just this Cygwin port") to
mailto:cygwin@cygwin.com.  For non-Cygwin-specific questions or bug reports
(e.g., "How do I change the UI colors?"), please visit the official Mutt site at


To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your system.

Run setup and answer all of the questions.

Note that if this is the first time that you've run the new GUI version
of setup, it will currently download the whole cygwin net release again.
After this point it will only download what is needed.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at:  cygwin@cygwin.com .  I would appreciate
if you would use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.
This includes ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin
in general.

If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing list is
the appropriate place.
