Because it doesn't provide the same set of functionalities?
A quick look at nullmailer and msmtp homepages shows that msmtp
supports SASL, and that is is developed actively. The last release of
nullmailer upstream is quite old now, given the path that SMTP is
taking right now...
If you want to send mail via SMTP with Mutt, you're likely to find
yourself typing "smtp client mutt" in google, or "apt-cache search mutt
smtp", guess what you would find? ;)
