Bye bye, sendmail

I've been wanting to upgrade the program that accepts and delivers mail on my system. The program that everyone used to use, and lots of folks still use, is named sendmail, and has been around for years. It's also a royal pain to configure correctly. I've looked at installing the latest version of sendmail three times, and gotten scared off every time.

Finally, today I installed postfix. It's a snap to configure. I had it installed and configured, including my current anti-spam settings, in about an hour. I'm going to install SpamAssassin later today, time permitting, and that looks to be simple as well.

Why didn't I do this much sooner?
