Richards had Town in the lead in the 14th minute when he converted a Kyle Knoyle cross from close range before Anderson doubled their advantage in the 43rd minute with a superb goal.
The January signing from Crystal Palace played a neat one-two with James Dunne and the winger steadied himself before slotting high into the back of the net.
Mullin made it 3-0 10 minutes into the second half with a low, drilled effort, to leave title winners Accrington humbled.
Both teams ended the game with 10 men after Swindon's Dunne and Accrington namesake Jimmy Dunne were sent off after a scuffle.
