In mu4e, :human-date shows seconds which I would like to avoid? How can I only show hour and minute in the HH:MM format?

You can customize mu4e-headers-time-format and mu4e-headers-date-format. Their default is to use a locale-dependant format ("%X" and "%x"), so I guess this should do the trick for you : (setq mu4e-headers-time-format "%H:%M")
