I just don't understand why people still gripe about Sendmail. Yeah, 
it was a force to be reckoned with in the early days, but it's 
stupid simple to configure these days, and it's pretty much the 
default in most *nix distributions. Aside from some folks being 
intimidated by the thought of mc files and running m4, it's pretty 
much *as simple* to configure as Postfix.

If Postfix works for you, hey great, you're free to run whatever you 
want. Telling someone to switch MTAs in the context of "how do I 
restore previous functionality in a program I choose to use" is not 
very constructive.
