Yes, for sendmail at least.


Unfortunately,  I don't know how to use smail with majorodomo.  I know
that there are some things you have to do differently and that
(as you can see) the debian installation doesn't work out of the box with
smail.

3) I run smail. How do I set up majordomo to work in this environment?

   Just set $sendmail_command to /bin/smail in your majordomo.cf.

   It has been reported that by default smail does not understand the
   :include: syntax, and that can be fixed by adding the following to
   /etc/smail/directors:

   aliasinclude:
        driver=aliasinclude,
        nobody;
        copysecure,
        copyowners,
