Configuring Mutt for use with GMail (via IMAP)

As great as Gmail's web interface is, there is nothing better (in my opinion) for reading through lots of mail than Mutt. Although I do use the web interface, when I'm going through my folders (GMail Labels) for various mailing lists, there is nothing better, or faster than Mutt.

The following .muttrc is a conglomeration of various help I found around the web, and the result is what ended up working best for me.
