Also one of the most powerfull. All linux and FBSD people have it
installed, its difficult to configure, you need to use the m4 thing, but
once this has been done (see the FBSD "handbook" file), you can forget it.
Well, there are other smtp programms, but you'll need an smtp server if
you want to use Pine or whatever like Eudora. Writing mail whenever you
want and send it when you are connected. I think if you use a permanently
connected machine, no modem, ppp etc, sendmail works out of the box, if
there wasnt ORBS and those other bad guys....
