my guess is that mutt uses SMTP to send email, while darcs invokes  
sendmail program.

To me, this looks like mail system configuration issue, not darcs.

darcs sends MIME message, you could not easily send from mutt. You need  
to set
correct content-types for parts.

I think sending via SMTP is more generic way to send email than  
invoking sendmail.
This also would work on any platform (no more windows MAPI hack, which  
does not seems
to be working last time we tried).

Quick search yielded couple of SMTP libraries darcs can use:
