I use 'msmtp' as the transport and have configured it to look up
passwords from 'password-store'.

$ git config --get-regexp sendemail.*
sendemail.smtpserver /home/marius/.guix-profile/bin/msmtp
sendemail.envelopesender auto

My ~/.msmtprc contains a line such as
'passwordeval "pass Email/fm/mbakke/out 2>/dev/null"'.  Obviously you
can use any other shell command here.

Hope this helps!
