Mutt does have activity. At least <https://github.com/karelzak/mutt-kz> has.

Applications are as good as the design decisions which result in their
development. If someone finds that that new fangled applications are
not providing enough merit to switchover, the possible reason might be
that the decisions of design and user experience are something that
does not meet this user's requirement. That happens all the time and,
there's not much achieved by boiling the ocean.
