Re: Bug#275685: ITP: msmtp -- smtp client which can be used as a smtp plugin with mutt

 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?  ;)
