Postfix is still just a fix. The final answer is Exim.
I feel sorry for people who torture themselves with vi /etc/sendmail.cf.
It's easier to write assembly code with debug under DOS than go through

code yet still use a config file that makes no sense whatsoever in /etc
space. Time for Sendmail to go.
