Here is what I am thinking... 1. You mentioned you can send via other
MUAs, pine, etc, so I am inclined to think that your SMTP auth is set up
properly in Sendmail... 2. Given this, I still think it could be a Mutt
problem.. I think you are getting a null Auth return because Mutt is not
sending your password in order to auth the SMTP transaction, and it is
getting bounced. 

Unfortunately, I do not know how to do this for SMTP in mutt, but only for
IMAPS.  Perhaps the Mutt list can help.. 

the only other thing I can think of, to rule out Sendmail as a cause, is
to log the entire SMTP transaction, say using Pine and Mutt with your
problem server. 

Good luck...
