Can you send a local mail to yourself from mutt?
Can you send a mail to yourself via the internet from mutt?
You should get a message back from your ISP's MTA if it doesn't work
which should provide a clue as to what the problem is.
Could be a setting in your .muttrc.
For example I have:
# Uncomment if some MTA's reject mail :-(
But it works fine for me commented, but I think you will need
Also check /etc/exim4/email-addresses and make sure you are added there.
Post back if still having problems.
