Thanks Brendan. Actually I found that this was already handled in the
stock modes.rc file, so I don't need to pass anything from mutt.

modes.rc:       mode-filename   '^\([Mm]ail\>.*\|\<mbox\|mutt-.*\)$'

The real problem is that almost nothing works with the +ex_command right

I don't use it all the time but it is handy.
