The very fact that you have to read a book to setup email
suggests to me that sendmail is _not_ "a great module".
It is a terrible mess.

I reckon 10 sample sendmail.mc's would cover 99.9% of home Linux users,
so I don't think there should be any need to read a book
unless one is running a system with hundreds of users,
