As I said, I was literally unable to get sendmail working despite
spending an entire weekend on it, and in general I'm pretty good at
bluffing my way through stuff based on Google results (you could call it
my specialist subject :>). postfix only took me several hours to get
going, and I at least vaguely understand what the hell was going on.
It's a really significant difference, in my experience anyway.
