This is not a good one.
Though I don't doubt the flexibility of sendmail, the .mc and compiler
dependency is a bit out of touch with Joe User.
I learnt sendmail the hard and long way and used to like it very much.
But on my production boxes, I rather have unprivileged daemons.

Let's face it: sendmail is a fantastic, clunky, army knife for an MTA. But
written when the ARPANET was a nice and friendly place.
