For Christ's sake, considering how far off the beaten path so many of
these postings get, I consider that replay appropriate. In any case,
the poster did reply to the OPs question regarding Sendmail -- he told
him how to remove it from his system and install Postfix. A solution
that would permanently eliminate the Sendmail configuration problem.
