mutt supports mbox just as well as maildir. I've been quite happy using
it with mbox, although I understand there are potentially some
performance advantages with maildir. You can also do more clever
rsync-ing between two systems that receive mail with maildir.

But if you are looking to move over to mutt with the least initial
disruption, just keep your mboxes.
