Mutt is generating PGP/MIME messages.  That's a good thing if it is
supported by your recipient, and a frustrating thing if it isn't.
Mutt comes with a document PGP-Notes.txt, and one of the questions in
there is "I don't like that PGP/MIME stuff, but want to use the old
way of PGP-signing my mails.  Can't you include that with mutt?".

A complete explanation is in there.
