What is the setting of sendmail in your .muttrc file?  My WAG is that it
is not set correctly.  If so, then you would get the above error.  Note
that /usr/doc/Cygwin/ssmtp-2.38.7.README states the following:

    When using mutt as the mail client, add the following line to your
    .muttrc or /etc/Muttrc file:

        set sendmail="/usr/sbin/ssmtp"

In the future, please post to the Cygwin list instead of sending private
email so others can benefit too.
