Actually I managed to compose an e-mail and pressed C-c C-c, but MIT-SCHEME was running inside a container (as in LXC), which didn't have sendmail, and as no error was given, I though the mail just got abandoned. I will go with SMTP, thanks for the tip.

Now you mentioned Edwin, I checked it out and saw that it also has an NNTP client + RMAIL. What is the relation between these parts? Is IMAIL  a newer version of RMAIL or do they serve different purposes? Sorry for my ignorance, I'm new to MIT-SCHEME.

   I couldn't find a way to send e-mails however, even after digging through
   the sources. Am I right in supposing that the functionality isn't there
   yet? Are there plans to implement it? (I think one can either use an SMTP
   library or rely on sendmail (on Unix). Which one would you prefer?) I
   checked todo.txt in the imail folder, but there were no mentions about
   sending e-mails.

It's not part of IMAIL -- it's another part of Edwin.  If you hit `m'
in IMAIL, it will open Edwin's mail composer.  When you send with `C-c
C-c', it will by default invoke the sendmail executable to submit the
message to the mail system, but you can also teach it to talk SMTP to
your favourite submission server by setting `mail-relay-host' to the
hostname of the submission server (and `mail-relay-service' to the
port number, if not 25).
