Mutt requires you to have a MTA installed and working to send mail.  I 
personally use sendmail with the default configuration that comes with 
slackware, with a minor configuration change to make sendmail relay 
mail through my ISP's smtp server.  Depending on your distro there may 
already be a configured and installed MTA but you might have to tweak 
the configuration a bit.
