Mutt is an email client, and the issue is that the emails coming out
of Opera M2, without hand-checking, contain a standard signature
delimiter (dash dash space newline) at the start of the client
advertisement that is placed before the writer's text.

Mutt marks any text below the standard signature delimiter as
a signature, and lowlights it. I'm used to this, and visually
skip the signature contents on first scan, leading to the impression
in my head that a reply has been sent to an email, but without
any text in it.
