- I really want to run mutt on my maildir directories without going
through imap. mutt is very fast in handling maildir directories
especially doing regular expression searches and while imap is great

I have had some success with courier managed maildirs and mutt. Maybe
these settings can help you (my home is /home/binand, mails land
by default into /home/binand/Maildir, and I have a few sub folders
there). Here are some settings:
Creating a folder is a problem; if I can find a way to ask mutt to use
maildirmake to create a non-existent folder, then I am happy. :-)
Incidentally, the tunnel variable also works for me with mutt and courier.
What is the exact problem you are facing? You need to have non-interactive
login on the imap server setup for it to work. If your IMAP server is
localhost, then you can just run /path/to/imapd Maildir as your tunnel
command, I suppose.
