That's a good question.  I tried tracing it, and I see it getting as far as
line 6663 (call_mailer) in pine/send.c before I loose it.

in send.c line 6653,  smtp_command sets postcmd to
"/usr/sbin/sendmail -bs -odb -oem", but then pine continues on inside the if
statement and resets postcmd to NIL, and then on  line 6663 it calls
smtp_open_full in c-client.
