As far as I know, mutt expects to pipe its output to a program,
sendmail by default.  The default value in my ~/.muttrc file is:

set sendmail="/usr/lib/sendmail -oem -oi"

Looking at the ``man muttrc'', I didn't see any references to
SMTP delivery.  If I didn't have a working sendmail interface, I
would write a python or perl script that would handle the SMTP
delivery, and pipe to that.
