Re: Zone file



I have to disagree. I've used sendmail for a number of years and have
found it to be just fine. To get power, you have to accept a little
complexity. What are the trade-offs between sendmail and qmail and any
others? Until you recognize that, don't decide not to dive into something.

One comment on the list however has given me pause. That was about
security holes. I've dealt with break-ins and have even been an expert
witness for an insurance company in a pretty nasty case. I've not seen
sendmail break-ins but I have seen others. Any more info would be greatly
appreciated.
