This is not correct. The rsync server is updated every hour, just the 
PortIndex only gets regenerated every 12 hours.

So something like this should work even before the PortIndex is updated 
(which would only be interesting for port upgrade):
   sudo port sync
   sudo port clean mutt
   sudo port build mutt +imap +ssl +buffy +compress +imap_headercache

If this worked fine, you can replace your current mutt with it:
   sudo port deactivate mutt
   sudo port install mutt

And optionally of course:
   sudo port -f uninstall mutt @old_version
