/usr/sbin/sendmail is an API, not a program.
I run postfix locally, delivering to my mail relay on port 26 (because
port 25 is too frequently blocked, and even 587 is sometimes forced
proxy'ied), and anyway, I try port 26 over IPsec or IPv6 if possible,
and postfix takes care of all this thinking for me...
Too often with submit to localhost, if my DNS is messed up or very slow
(such as on dialup at the cottage) I've had my submissions rejected due
to timeouts, rather than queued. Yes, it can be fixed for submissions
from localhost, but /usr/sbin/sendmail API doesn't suffer from this
I will look at slocal again for inteface to fetchmail and try to write a
FAQ on this --- I'm in favour of removing as much as possible in the
POP/IMAP/SMTP side of nmh, but I also want the
nmh-over-fuse-does-IMAP to work in someway.
