When i compose a message with mutt, mutt first asks me if i would like to recall a postponed messsage. I do not want mutt to ask me this. Can i tell mutt to skip this step and get straight to the composing?

That behaviour is controlled by the recall option, which defaults to ask-yes. You can skip that by setting it to no:

set recall=no
