sendmail seems to work fine in getmailrc:

type = MDA_external
path = /usr/sbin/sendmail
arguments = ("-i", "owenh@localhost")

getmail only accepts a single "retriever" section (a single account), so
for multiple accounts multiple rc files must be used, then referred to
using "getmail -r $rcfile1 -r $rcfile2".

Thanks again for your help.
