According to the configure script it appears all you need for color is start_color() from ncurses which should be there in the base system. Can you provide 'mutt -v' output? Does it have +HAVE_COLOR? Are you building mutt from source or using ports/pkg? If so can you provide the output off 'pkg info -f mutt' > So the terminal is doing color as expected, but somehow mutt/neomutt > doesn't seem to recognize that.

I'm doing nothing special in ports/pkg or from source and colors just works with macOS Terminal/iTerm2, or cygwin xterm. Do you get color unknown command when you try to use 'color ...' in a .muttrc?
