(2) Mutt has a feature that lets you send an EXACT copy of a message

If this is such a good feature, why is mutt the only agent doing it?

It isn't. But it's not a common feature, in common mailers. It's
analogous to a power tool. All mutt is really doing is feeding the mail
to /usr/bin/sendmail, and specifying the address to which you want it
sent on the sendmail command-line. It relies upon you having a properly
configured /usr/bin/sendmail interface (which is provided by, for
example, Exim — not just Sendmail). The same result can be achieved with
a procmail recipe, or a shell script, if you have access to the raw
mail.
