mutt bouncing replies to emails

Hello all,.

I just started to setup Mutt for my email. I'm able to download all my messages from my POP server using fetchmail and procmail. I can send mail fine using nbsmtp with mutt. The only problem I am having is that when I reply to an email mutt seems to mangle the email address I'm replying to. Here's a copy of the bounce

Sorry, no mailbox here by that name. (#5.1.1)

Sorry, I couldn't find any host named>>. (#5.1.2)

--- Below this line is a copy of the message.

Return-Path: <me@meathome.nett>
Received: (qmail 28958 invoked from network); 19 Aug 2004 01:58:21 -0000
Received: from (HELO ([66.xx.xx.xx])

To: "Smith, Joe" <>
Subject: Re: hello

Is this a configuration problem with my .muttrc file?

Anyone have any idea?
