mutt-users, not mutt-dev.

They are quite helpful. Just lurking on that list over time has taught
me much about mutt. You can become near-wizard by osmosis. (That said,
hostname and from issues are complicated, because so many entities are
involved. It always takes me a while to figure it out.)

One way to test is to set mutt's idea of how to hand off mail to be
something like "cat > /tmp/foo" instead of invoking /usr/lib/sendmail,
and then looking at the spool files generated as you make ridiculous
changes to variables, like, just to see exactly
what's happening.)
