I use mutt in screen, and I can't say I've noticed anything odd.
Doesn't mutt always spawn an external editor?  Which one do you use?
And does your editor work in screen or not?

Of course, I use vi, with Perl's 'Text::AutoFormat' bound to the
equals key, so I typically let it reformat much of my messages
(including quoted bits) to linewrap it more stylishly for me.
