Probably not. The msmtp default configuration seems to contain
the option MSMTPQ for managing offline message queues, and this
is done via bash scripts. It _might_ be possible to try to run
those scripts with regular sh, and in case this won't work,
change them in order to _not_ require any bash-isms. :-)
