Sounds like he hit a nerve.  Sendmail's config is, indeed, overly 
complicated.  sendmail.cf is a total headache.  Yeah, people aren't 
supposed to edit it directly, but somehow the word has not really gotten 

Of course, the mc's also deserve a place in the usability "Hall of 
Shame" for their unreadability.  I mean, "dnl" is a perfectly logical 
symbol to designate a comment, right?

My favorite quote about sendmail.cf?

"Most users' sendmail.cf comes from God, their OS distributor, and they 
pray that it just works..."

Sincerely (and still using sendmail),
Steve Bergman
