If you're using sendmail, in its capacity as an MTA queue injection
command, I think you're not using local SMTP.
My fetchmail config does do smtp; it just connects to localhost on port
I'm not sure what problems he's referring to with queue injection, but I
haven't noticed any with my usage of smtp.
