What is "Error sending message, child exited 67 (User unknown.)."? using mutt

I've got a bash shell script file which is executed as a service under root.
When executing:

/usr/bin/mutt -s "subject" -a < /dev/null

I get:

"Error sending message, child exited 67 (User unknown.)"

When this is not ran as a service or from the command line, the message get send and I don't get this error. I also echoed "whoami" which resulted in "root".

Please advise.
