advantage (this is arcane territory for me). I would disable the
sendmail daemon, then have to configure 2 applications, where
sendmail needs NO configuration, and have to run another daemon
named procmail? So, I'm still running a daemon anyway and have a
whole lot of work to do every Fedora upgrade.

esmtp or ssmtp are replacements Sendmail, and are faster loading.
You are using procmail for local mail delivery now - Sendmail calls
it when needed. It is not a daemon.
