Yes, Mike Watters did a lot of work and also Benny I think. I have
touched it as well some time ago and would like to simplify it more in
the direction of the current Postfix package by Sebastian.

I don't like the current Sendmail package that messes with the system
way too much. I would like it to install more passively and the admin
has to run a script manually to get it to replace system binaries
which the current package just does no questions asked. If I remember
correctly it also hangs during first install.

This was the first package I installed from OpenCSW because Sun didn't
compile Sendmail with TLS support. :)
