The other replies in this thread are telling you what you probably
already know: Mutt uses the local MTA to send mail out.
Is Exim definitely running? What happens when you do:
telnet 127.0.0.1 25
Do you get an Exim banner come up? If not, that's your problem.
When you say "Sending mail normally from command line functions
correctly", what exactly do you mean? It is possible that the
command(s) you issue are not invoking the MTA, especially if it results
in local delivery.
