Hello

I'm doing this way, i run an script from cron. Sending several 
attachments to several addresses with a text in the email's body.

In the script called by cron put:

EDITOR=touch mutt -s "Here the subject" -F /home/user/.muttrc -i 
/usr/local/bin/body_text.txt -a /tmp/attachment1 -a /tmp/attachement2 -b 
address1 at someplace.com address2 at someserver.com 
addressN at anyserver.com</dev/null

And .muttrc:

set from=sender_email at somesite.com
set envelope_from=yes
set realname="Sender's Name"

Hope this helps you
Best
