Hi Jost.

Many thanks for your help.

I tried but it didn't solved the problem. mutt refused to open the buffer
and quit :-(

I had no file ~/.emac.d/init.el

So I created it and wrote your line but it produces no effect.

Finally I put the line in .emacs and now I have what I want. I replaced
message-mode with text-mode because I don't know at all this mode but I
will try it later.

Thanks a lot.
