This looks very interesting and right now I'm using it instead of msmtp
for my outgoing mail.

My setup is:

getmail -> maildrop/mailfilter -> mutt -> dma

I'm uncertain how to use dma for system mail messages, ex cron output.
dma's docs say that it doesn't listen on port 25.  

I had found a web site that showed how to replace sendmail with dma, but
can't find it again.  Forgot what words I searched on.
