On the other hand, setting up Postfix for it only requires editing one or two lines in a configuration file. Now, I need the mail server to be able to send mail over the Internet, so I had to do a little extra configuration. (I send out monthly calenders to a bunch of people.) On the other hand, installing Postfix would be a lot less work then what you are going through with Sendmail right now. And Sendmail is just as much overkill... I never considered it worth while to search out and learn one of the light MTA replacements when Postfix works well for me.
