[smokeping-users] Using mutt rather than Sendmail?

I don't have sendmail installed on the machine running smokeping. I do
have mutt, with LIBeSMTP and the patch to allow Mutt to talk directly to
the SMTP server,  I know mutt works ok as I can send email from the CLI
and GUI. My SMTP server requires non-standard ports and SMTP_AUTH, so
mutt's easier to use for this purpose than sendmail or postfix etc....
Is it possible to have smokeping send email using mutt instead of
sendmail ? I've modified the config to point sendmail=/usr/bin/mutt but
when I run tSmoke --testmail I see nothing going to the SMTP server (I
should shouldn't I ?)
