Unless you have changed it, mutt's default is set to use
"/usr/sbin/sendmail -oem -oi", so you should not need an entry in
muttrc. On Debian/GNU, /usr/sbin/sendmail will be a symlink to your
MTA. As long as /usr/sbin/sendmail is a symlink to exim, try checking the
exim logs in /var/log/exim or exim's queues to see what is happening
to your message.
