Sendmail may have been a cornerstone of early Internet e-mail, but, except
for large institutions that already have spent thousands of man-hours creating
the perfect sendmail.cf, it makes me wonder why anybody else even bothers
with its buggy and dangerous code.

Postfix... Exim... Qmail... they are much easier to configure and, in my
opinion, are perfect drop-in replacements for it.

Does anyone else have an opinion as to why an average user should or
should not use this archaic program?
