I prefer 'post-mode' for editing outgoing mail with emacs started from 
mutt. You can get it from here:

To use it, you have to put the el-file in a folder you want, lets say 
".emacs.stuff" and insert the following lines to your .emacs file:

(setq load-path (cons "~/.emacs.stuff" load-path))
(load "post")

This starts the post-mode every time, you start emacs. For running emacs 
using mutt I wrote an extra config-file with the postmode-entry and 
insert the line

set editor='emacs -nw -l ~/.emacs.mail'

in .muttrc.

Ciao, Uwe
