That works or the 'set' notation.  From my ~/.muttrc:

  set envelope_from=yes
  set spoolfile=~/Maildir/
  mailboxes !spug
  folder-hook spug set from=\"Chris Wilkes <cwilkes-spug at ladro.com>\"
  set editor="/usr/local/bin/vim -c 'set textwidth=72'"

folder-hooks are extremely handy. I had to set the envelope_from equal
to 'yes' or else my return-path is set to just 'cwilkes at ladro.com' which
screws up Qmail's ezmlm mailing list admin tool.
Setting vim's column length to 72 is also very handy.  That combined
with mapping the F1 key in my .exrc (vim script) to Text::AutoFormat has
made Mutt my favorite mail client.
