Good suggestion, but I think that the fact that there's an extremely
well written (meaning quite well commented, with perfect targets)
Makefile, which will perform, for the user who might be innocent of
sendmail, all of the more difficult bits.  The Makefile is in
/etc/mail/Makefile, and watchig it in action will show users how to do
those things they might be unaware of.  Probably ought to read the
README in that directory, also.
