Hm, sounds like some fifteen years, or so, back.  There were indeed
times when configuring sendmail required messing directly with
sendmail.cf and that borders on a "black magic". :-)  Only you do
not have to do that longer that I care to remember.

Setting postfix to do somethig "unusual" can be actually quite a bit
harder than doing that with sendmail.  In "not an outside accesible
mail server" situation what comes with Fedora for sendmail AFAIK
"just works".
