I am using DragonFly mail agent on some jails since a few months and it works
OK. Hence dma.tgz compiles out of the box and works as advertised on FreeBSD.
I can give some information on the configuration: this shows the simplicity of
the configuration file.
jail1% cat /etc/dma/dma.conf
# $DragonFly: src/etc/dma/dma.conf,v 1.2 2008-02-04 10:11:41 matthias Exp $

# smarthost support. Here i take the base host as smarthost
# Use this SMTP port. Most users will be fine with the default (25)

To deliver local mail it seems that dma needs to be suid root:
jail1% ls -l /usr/libexec/sendmail/dma
-r-sr-sr-x 1 root mail 42904 Aug 20 00:45 /usr/libexec/sendmail/dma
The spool directory is
drwxrwxr-x 2 root mail 2 Jan 8 03:05 dma
