I haven't used mutt in a while, but I still have this in my .emacs:

(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("/mutt" . mail-mode))

I believe that that will put all buffers visiting mutt files into
mail-mode automatically. You could switch that to text-mode, but you
might find that mail-mode covers what you want already.

Cheers,
