I beg to differ.. FreeBSD comes with sendmail configured to run just fine
by default. Thats the main reason I and many others (probably) continue
using it, just because its there and it works. Yes, it would be nice if
it was easier to remove rather than simply disable (This is something that
needs work, removing unneeded parts of the base os)
