What options? What do you mean?Usually it's your .bashrc file that specifies the term, so perhaps you have to pass the options to emulate the login
How do I parse the bashrc? I've been trying to get it to source the file then run mutt, but that won't work. Getting the -e option to run more than one command is impossible.or to parse the .bashrc files and that should set your term correctly.
I had the same trouble (no color) with KDE's Konsole as well.
