I've done just that in /etc/sendmail.cf (How do I set that in sendmail.mf and
regenerate sendmail.cf?) I want the default behaviour for sendmail to be deferred
anyhow so I haven't tried setting it in the .muttrc
but i suspect it should work there anyhow (though, would this override the
daemonised sendmail's behaviour if it is set to something other than

Since mutt's imap support is still fragile, I think I'll just keep using it by
rlogin to hobbiton and implement the imap bit later. I think my client
sendmail works correctly but I'll have to look into that later. Something
about SmartHost in one of the many config files...

Well, I was still looking through the mutt documentation and I hadn't a
.signature on this particular machine. I've got one now and it works!
