You can use the "set alternates" command to tell mutt what email
addresses you receive mail at:
set alternates="(address1 at domain|address2 at domain).(com|net|org)"
or whatever regular expression works for your email addresses.
This should automatically let mutt know that it should flag mail to
any of these alternates as mail to you.

unset metoo will stop any of your alternate addresses from being
included in a group-reply.
Another option I find useful is to "set reverse_name" which tells mutt
that whatever incoming email address was used in the To: field should
be what it should use in the From: field when you reply. This way, if
you receive mail via 5 different email accounts, mutt will make sure
that the correct email address is used when you reply.
