Setting TERM to cons25 is okay. It does not prevent you to have colors. In mutt, you must define the colors yourself, see file attached for example setup. > Yesterday, I used putty/ssh to connect to my machine and used elinks > on it.

I just tested with "w3m www.freebsd.org" on the console, there are blue colors for links, green for images, and red for forms.

Well, you cannot set TERM arbitrarily. The underlying terminal won't probably support the escape sequences produced by the curses library if you use another TERM setting from your actual terminal.
