The problem with msmtp is both that it hangs emacs while sending the
email, and that on delivery error you have to handle it yourself.  The
reason why I so much prefer postfix here is that it will queue the
outgoing mail then deliver it in the background, and it will manage the
delivery queue and retry if necessary.

See also my mailq mode that allows me to quickly see if I have to force
a send retry and to flush my postfix queue all from Emacs.

That's a whole other problem here, agreed.
