Because you know Postfix, and don't know sendmail. With m4 sendmail is
not so difficult to configure.

Not true.

Just look to the past two years.

The historical security record of sendmail is poor, but to compare it
with the security record of tools that does not even exists when those
security holes appeared is not fair.

Of course if I code tomorrow "foomail" will have a better security
record than Postfix.

Did you benchmarked this, or are those simply your intuitions ?

I readed third party benchmarks of sendmail vs Postfix vs Qmail, and
Postfix had the worst results.

I also readed benchmarks from Postfix advocates and Postfix had the best
results. You can find this benchmark in lots of Postfix sites, the same
benchmark I mean.

But well, what I'd like to ask is: What's wrong with current fedora's
MTA management ?

You can use Postfix, you can use sendmail, you can switch betwen them
... What's the problem then ?

Are you advocating to delete sendmail ??

Are you proposing any other MTA management scheme better than current
fedora's one ?

If you'll not do it, this thread is simply a waste of time.
