because it's stupid, lazy advice.

1: it's easy for non-experts to edit the sendmail configuration too...
as long as they're editing the mc file, not the cf.

2: changing software doesn't help solve the problem.

3: what if he has a bunch of milters or related programs that rely on
sendmail? are they all available for postfix? what needs to be changed
to match his current environment? have you thought about that? has
anyone asked James that before recommending he changes his software?
