Having just been poking about in mutt sources, another possibility is
"search" in /etc/resolv.conf, after looking for "domain". Debian has a
/etc/mailname file which is created during install and is a single line
consisting of hostname.domain (or just hostname if no domain was given).
Incidently the domainname field in the utsname structure returned by
uname(2) is a GNUism.

Just fwiw, fyi,
