Ahh.. Yes so I invoked --morning instead and it does appear to use
mutt, but mutt bypassed the SMTP_AUTH portion so the server rejects the
connection... It DID use the alternate SMTP Port though, so it's
something in the mutt backend it would seem now.. Interesting. Thanks!

I suppose mutt should work, if it supports sendmail-style options.
Smokeping calls sendmail as
# <sendmail-program> -f <from-address> <to-address>
so there's nothing fancy there.
The tSmoke '--testmail' option is unfortunately misnamed. It apparently
doesn't really send anything, just tells where the mail would go.
