Hit "s" then "?" and pick the mailbox you want to save it to.
Or "s" then "=" then type in the name of the mailbox.

I use procmail to deliver mails from a particular list to their
own mbox, and list that with the mailboxes command:
mailboxes =email@example.com =firstname.lastname@example.org
....and invoke Mutt with mutt -y.
They are _already_ saved in their own mailboxes by the time
Mutt sees them.
[ Procmail is also handy here because there are always a few
idiots on every mailing list that Cc a copy of every mail
of theirs to the list to the individual they are replying to,
and I have procmail send these to /dev/null. ]
In my ~/.muttrc, each mailing list is included like so:
For myself, I wish there was a way to *initiate* a post to
a particular list with a keybinding.
