Having a Sent folder is fine. A second Sent folder should not be
necessary, but can't really hurt.  Did you reply with `Y' on this
question?  Did it give an error?

Make that:
set record="=sent-mail"
or
set record="~/Mail/sent-mail"
or something like that.

You are getting this question about Sent when you are resuming the
postponed message, am I right? If so, then mutt remembers that this
message was supposed to go into the Sent folder. Try pressing `f' -
for Fcc, File Carbon Copy - to specify a different folder to save
in. If it gives problems, leave it empty. You message then won't be
saved, but should still get sent.

Or start a fresh message and see if sent-mail comes up in the Fcc
field.
