No. If you read the first things on msmtp home page (as I did it, before
writing here), you'll read that simply you must use its binary (msmtp)
from mutt and not "sendmail".

I'm not msmtp fan or user, but I lost two minutes to read the home page
trying to understand the differences. msmtp is simply a way to delivery
mail to a remote smtp server. For example you cannot have it listening
on 25 port, so I cannot see it as a sendmail alternative, just like
nullmailer or ssmtp or other ones...
