I just did this, so check the following:
1. You're using rxvt rather than xterm. (Std. xterm doesn't support color)
2. ncurses is v4.2 (I don't think the old 1.9.9 pkg works)
3. you've set up color in your .muttrc . (The defaults don't do anything)
4. Your term type supports color. I use "kterm" with rxvt, as that's
what the rxvt package seems to supply)
Hope this helps.
