Probably not.  The details posted in my message were the changes that I
made on my workstation at work to enable mail sending.  I'm using
several different features of Sendmail that a vanilla setup probably
doesn't need though, i.e.

	- the custom mailertable entry for accessing my company's
	  internal mail server through our VPN connection

	- the ability to alter the envelope-from address

	- masquerading as (actually, this can be more
	  useful than it looks at first)

All these are features that I don't *HAVE* to enable just to be able to
send outgoing mail.  They're just convenient tricks that I thought you
might find useful :)
