Thanks Michael. 
Well, I just thought of something else to try and this is what I did:
since (in Slackware) vi is linked to elvis, I used vim to create a file in /tmp.
I then ran "echo $?" and it returned 0.
I then set my editor to vim in my .muttrc and created and sent a message using 
No problems whatsoever. Problem is with user/elvis and not with mutt :)

Thanks to all for your help. I'll ask help on the Slackware forums and if 
anybody cares, I'll post the "fix".
