https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=261536 --- Comment #3 from Jamie Landeg-Jones <email@example.com> --- michael.osipov at siemens.com pointed out on the mailing list that some applications only talk smtp to send mail: > It is not that easy just too look at ports. I give you three examples > from work: > > 1. Zabbix (network monitoring), suppports only SMTP, although PHP > supports sendmail(8) > 2. JavaMail Transport implementation exists only for SMTP, I was not > able to find any transport implementation for sendmail(8). Maybe I will > write one for fun. > 3. Python mail package supports SMTP only, no other package available, > at least AFAIK. > > Unless ecosystems provide impls for sendmail(8) I see it very hard to > live without localhost:25 for many cases. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
