Yes, I vaguely remember asking on the mutt list once if one could do
that and they said "no!"  mutt calls sendmail directly - not via
TCP/IP but by directly spawning the process.  In fact, in order to use
exim like we do, we need to have a program out there called 'sendmail'
that mutt uses.  I just have a symbolic link from exim to sendmail.
