I don't have any expectations, but ideally, it would work without
specifying this environment variable.

I think approaches other than sendmail are supported [1], but I'm
unsure if that includes msmtp.

This is probably more about the Mail::Mailer perl package in the
perl-mailtools package, than caff, that just uses Mail::Mailer.

I spent a bit of time looking at the Mail::Mailer source code when
trying to get caff working, but unfortunately, bits of it are still a
bit cryptic to me.
