I use mutt + msmtp. It very powerful and flexible.

My msmtprc file looks like:

logfile ~/.msmtp.log

account gmail
host smtp.gmail.com
port 587
from driodeiros at gmail.com
user myuser
password mypassword
auth on
tls on

account default : gmail

And then I tell mutt to use msmtp for sending the email:

set sendmail="/opt/local/bin/msmtp"

You can easily use different accounts and use then as you 
need. Check the msmtp site for more info. 

By the way, I still have a very annoying problem with gmail 
that I couldn't manage to fix yet. I cannot see the emails
that I sent to the mailing list. I mean, gmail servers 
remove the emails coming from the mailing list with me in
from. It is very annoying. Anyone know how to fix that?
