I use mutt 100% of the time (and trn 100% of the time for news, for that
matter).  I also happen to receive HTML e-mail all the time.  I have yet
to receive an HTML e-mail that mutt didn't render just fine--in many
cases I don't even notice that an HTML conversion is going on.

In case you need help, in your .mailcap:

text/html; lynx -dump %s; copiousoutput; nametemplate=%s.html

And in the .muttrc:

auto_view text/html

(Or perhaps you prefer complaining).
